The151Sm(n,gamma)152Sm cross section has been measured at the spallation neutron facility n_TOF at CERN in the energy range from 1 eV to 1 MeV. The new facility combines excellent resolution in neutron time-of-flight, low repetition rates, and an unsurpassed instantaneous luminosity, resulting in rather favorable signal/background ratios. The 151Sm cross(More)
An electron-impact ion source based on photoelectron emission was developed for ionization of gases at pressures below 10(-4) mbar in an axial magnetic field in the order of 5 T. The ion source applies only dc fields, which makes it suitable for use in the presence of equipment sensitive to radio-frequency (RF) fields. The ion source was successfully tested(More)
The n_TOF Collaboration has built and commissioned a high-performance detector for ðn;gÞ measurements called the Total Absorption Calorimeter (TAC). The TAC was especially designed for measuring neutron capture cross-sections of low-mass and/or radioactive samples with the accuracy required for nuclear technology and stellar nucleosynthesis. We present a(More)

In very peripheral nucleus-nucleus collisions at energies well above the Fermi-energy regime friction phenomena set in. Friction appears as a consequence of interactions between the projectile and target matter in the overlapping region, and leads to a conversion of relative kinetic energy into excitation energy of projectile and target spectators. Due to(More)
In Accelerator-driven Systems (ADS), (n,xn) reactions have more importance than in conventional reactors. Indeed in ADS the external neutron flux provided by the accelerator is produced by spallation reactions, which means that its spectrum extends to several hundreds of MeV. On the other hand, the cross-sections of these reactions are often badly known.(More)
In this paper we will report on tests we have performed at GELINA (IRMM Geel), CYCLONE (Louvain-la-Neuve) and n-ToF (CERN) to demonstrate that the in-beam γ-ray spectroscopy can be adapted to low frequency white neutron beams or to quasi-monoenergetic neutron beams in order to measure (n,xn) cross sections. After a description of the nuclear data status,(More)
Nuclear reactions induced by relativistic particle beams have been widely studied in the context of applications like Accelerator Driven Systems, or Radioactive Ion Beam (RIB) production. One of the most important questions for applications is that of the optimal reaction system to deliver the desired final result. In the context of RIB production, one is(More)
Within the scope of the EURISOL project [1], the design of a large-scale European secondary-beam facility based on the ISOL (Isotope Separation On Line) method is actually being worked out. One of the tasks defined in the project is devoted to the predictions of the nuclide yields of the future facility. The efficiency with which specific nuclides are(More)
