Abstract : A complete decay scheme of Re-184 and Re-184 (excited state), based on the collective model is proposed. Based on that scheme the Re-185 (n,2n) Re-184 cross section reported in the previous report was recalculated to be 1.91 ! 0.6 barns. Furthermore, the cross section for the Re-185 (n,2n) Re-184 (excited state) reaction was found to be 1.12 ! 0.4 barns. The Re (n,p) W cross section for 14.1 Mev neutrons was calculated to be 32.2 millibarns. This value is not exact but it seems to be about the right order of magnitude. Possible excited states of Au-196 were calculated by using the shell model. (Author)
