Neutron-induced light-ion production from Fe, Pb and U at 96 MeV

Abstract : Double-differential cross sections for light-ion production (up to A=4) induced by 96 MeV neutrons have been measured for $^{nat}$Fe, $^{nat}$Pb and $^{nat}$U. The experiments have been performed at the The Svedberg Laboratory in Uppsala, using two independent devices, MEDLEY and SCANDAL. The recorded data cover a wide angular range (20º - 160º) with low energy thresholds. The work was performed within the HINDAS collaboration studying three of the most important nuclei for incineration of nuclear waste with accelerator-driven systems (ADS). The obtained cross section data are of particular interest for the understanding of the so-called pre-equilibrium stage in a nuclear reaction and are compared with model calculations performed with the GNASH, TALYS and PREEQ codes
