The accurate knowledge of the 15ISm(n,gamma) cross section has important implications for the nuclear technologies as well as far fundamental studies. Due to its radioactivity, the only experimental data available on 151Sm were derived from a transmission measurement. Nowadays thanks to the innovative features of neutron time-of-flight facility (n_TOF), it was possible to measure 151Sm(n,gamma) cross section in a wide energy range and with good accuracy.

Abstract

The accurate knowledge of the 15ISm(n,gamma) cross section has important implications for the nuclear technologies as well as far fundamental studies. Due to its radioactivity, the only experimental data available on 151Sm were derived from a transmission measurement. Nowadays thanks to the innovative features of neutron time-of-flight facility (n_TOF), it was possible to measure 151Sm(n,gamma) cross section in a wide energy range and with good accuracy. We present, here, the main experimental results together with the implications concerning the nuclear astrophysical part.
