Abstract

This paper is devoted to measurement of the energy dependence of the 14N(n,t)12C reaction cross-section. All experimental works available for the cross-sections were analysed. A more advanced experimental method based on digital spectrometry was used. The neutron fission cross-section of 238U served as a standard. Measurements were made in the 5.45–7.2 MeV energy region with an uncertainty of 12–14%.
