Abstract

The total gamma-ray production cross-sections in the 0.5-10 MeV energy range and discrete gamma line production cross-sections for E = 791, 843, 952, 984, 1013, 1692, 1719, 1809, 2210, 2980 + 3001 keV were evaluated. The total cross-sections were evaluated for neutron energies of 1-18.8 MeV, and the cross-sections for discrete lines for neutron energies of 1-16 MeV. The evaluations were performed using cubic spline approximation curves. The curve parameters were determined by the maximum likelihood method.
