Abstract

The measurements were carried out in the 0.5-14 MeV gamma-ray energy region by the time-of-flight method. An NaI(Tl) scintillation spectrometer was used. Total and differential gamma-ray production cross-sections were obtained for 16 nuclei. The experimental errors measured 9% for the total cross-sections and varied from 6% to 50-70% for the differential cross-sections.
