Abstract : The characteristics of the V51(p,n)Cr51 reaction and its use as a neutron source of known intensity are discussed. Experimental techniques for the preparation and use of vanadium targets are described. Data on the neutron yield from the V51(p,n)Cr51 reaction are presented for proton energies in the range from 1.58 to 2.28 MeV. (Author)
