Commercial sugarcane records for 19 seasons from 146 fields were obtained from five estates in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Extensive editing and cleaning of the agronomic records was required. Regression models were developed, and depending on the predictor variables selected, the best model accounted for 55% of the observed yield variation, based on 535(More)
Double-differential cross sections for light-ion (p, d, t, He and α) production in oxygen induced by 96 MeV neutrons are reported. Energy spectra are measured at eight laboratory angles from 20◦ to 160◦ in steps of 20◦. Procedures for data taking and data reduction are presented. Deduced energy-differential and production cross sections are reported.(More)
A research program has been started to study experimentally the near-threshold photodissociation of nuclides in the chain of cosmic heavy element production with bremsstrahlung from the ELBE accelerator. An important prerequisite for such studies is good knowledge of the bremsstrahlung distribution which was determined by measuring the photodissociation of(More)
In recent years, an increasing number of applications involving fast neutrons have been developed or are under consideration, e.g. radiation treatment of cancer, neutron dosimetry at commercial aircraft altitudes, soft-error effects in computer memories, accelerator-driven transmutation of nuclear waste and energy production and determination of the(More)
Double-differential cross-sections for light-ion production (up to A = 4) induced by 96 MeV neutrons have been measured for Fe, Pb and U. The experiments have been performed at The Svedberg Laboratory in Uppsala, using two independent devices, MEDLEY and SCANDAL. The recorded data cover a wide angular range (20 degrees -160 degrees ) with low energy(More)
We describe a double-scattering experiment with a novel tagged neutron beam to measure differential cross sections for np backscattering to better than +/-2% absolute precision. The measurement focuses on angles and energies where the cross section magnitude and angle dependence constrain the charged pion-nucleon coupling constant, but existing data show(More)
