Thermal neutron capture cross section of palladium-107

Nakamura, Shoji  ; Harada, Hideo   ; Raman, S.*; Koehler, P. E.*

Prompt $$gamma$$ rays induced by thermal neutron capture on an enriched $$^{107}$$Pd sample were analyzed to obtain the thermal neutron capture cross section for this nuclide. Intensities of prompt $$gamma$$-ray transitions feeding the ground state were summed to determine a lower limit for the thermal neutron capture cross section of 9.16$$pm$$0.27 b. There have been no previously reported values for this cross section. Our measured value is five times larger than evaluations of this cross section, which are based on resonance parameter data.
