The cross section for the reaction 6Li(3He,n) 8B at the bombarding energy of 5.77 MeV was measured.

Abstract

The cross section for the reaction 6Li(3He,n) 8B at the bombarding energy of 5.77 MeV was measured. Eight liquid BC501 scintillators were used for the detection of the recoil neutrons, while the 3He elastic scattering was used for the absolute cross section normalization. The capabilities of digital electronics have been exploited both for the neutron time of flight measurement and the neutron/gamma pulse shape discrimination. Theoretical calculations were performed by means of the "Zero Range Knockout Distorted Wave Born Approximation". Results show a good agreement between the calculations, our experimental data and earlier experimental data based on the time of flight technique.
