Abstract : A literature survey was conducted to determine the angular and energy distribution of neutrons nonelastically scattered from a number of elements and to determine information concerning gamma rays resulting from such events. This survey included all available data for incident neutron energies in the region about 1 Mev and at 15 Mev. Energy distributions of nonelastically scattered neutrons were measured for Be, Co, Mo, Cd, and W at 45 and 90 for 15-Mev incident neutrons, and for B, C, Mg, Al, Si, Mn, Fe, Ni, Cu, Se, and Pb at 90 for 15-Mev incident neutrons. Angular distributions of nonelastically scattered neutrons were measured for Be, Co, Mo, Cd, and W for 15-Mev incident neutrons. The (n, 2n) cross section was measured for N-14, F-19, Cu-63, Cu-65, and Sb-121 from 13.2 to 15.7 Mev. Spectra were taken of gamma rays resulting from nonelast, 12U (5 Sep 61) OTS price $1.60Air Force Special Weapons Center, Kirtland Air Force Base, N. Mex.
