Experimental determination of the14N(n, p)14C reaction cross section for thermal neutrons
The 14N (n, p)14C reaction cross section was determined at the high flux reactor of the ILL in Grenoble using various polyamide and adenine samples. We obtained a precise value of (1.93 =/-0.05)b for the cross section. A comparison is made with the currently available results in the literature and the astrophysical context is briefly discussed. Also the previously determined 17O(n, alpha)14C cross section is renormalized taking into account this new result.
