Determination of the thermal neutron induced (17)O(n,alpha)(14)C reaction cross-section
The (17)O(n,alpha)(14)C reaction cross-section was determined at the high flux reactor of the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble relative to the known (14)N(n(th),p)(14)C cross-section. For the flux calibration measurements, (14)N(2) from the air was used. The (17)O(n,alpha) measurements were performed with several highly enriched oxygen gas samples. This resulted in a precise value of (244 +/- 7) mb for the (17)O(n,alpha)(14)C cross-section.
