On the Mechanism of Photoneutron Reactions at Light Tellurium Isotopes in the 10–18 MeV Interval
Keywords:giant dipole resonance, atomic nucleus, nuclear reactions, cross-section, bremsstrahlung gamma spectrum, isomeric ratio
The yield of the 122Te(y, n)121Te reaction is measured, and its cross-section is calculated in a gamma-ray energy interval of 10–18 MeV. The obtained cross-section is compared with the cross-section of the reaction 120Te(y, n)119Te. The experimental results are compared with those of theoretical calculations performed with the use of the software package TALYS-1.9. The statistical mechanism dominant in (y, n) reactions at the studied nuclei is found.
