Diffusion de neutrons de 14 MeV par le carbone 12
The angular distributions of the differential cross-sections for scattering of 14,1 MeV neutrons from 12C, Q = 0(0+); – 4,43(2+); – 7,65(0+) and – 9,63(8–) MeV, have been measured using a time-of-flight spectrometer. An indication can be found of the excitation of a wide level at about 10 MeV. A Monte-Carlo programme has been worked up and used to correct the results for multiple scattering; it calculates time-of-flight spectra which can be compared with the measured ones in order to deduce the best values of the cross-sections. The results are finally confronted with other experimental determinations and existing theoretical predictions.
