Abstract : The relative cross sections of the 24Mg(n,p), 27Al(n,p), and 27Al(n, alpha) reactions were measured with accuracies of a few per cent of better. All three excitation functions fluctuate with periods of the order of a few hundred kilovolts and magnitude of a few per cent. The observed structure is consistent with the Ericson theory. (Author)
