Using quasi-monochromatic laser-Compton scattering $$gamma$$ rays, total photoneutron cross sections were measured for $$^{206,207,208}$$Pb near neutron threshold with a high-efficiency 4$$pi$$ neutron detector. Partial $$E$$1 and $$M$$1 photoneutron cross sections along with total cross sections were determined for $$^{207,208}$$Pb at four energies near threshold by measuring anisotropies in photoneutron emission with linearly-polarized $$gamma$$ rays. The $$E$$1 strength dominates over the $$M$$1 strength in the neutron channel where $$E$$1 photoneutron cross sections show extra strength of the pygmy dipole resonance in $$^{207,208}$$Pb near the neutron threshold corresponding to 0.32-0.42% of the Thomas-Reiche-Kuhn sum rule. Several $$mu$$$$_N^{2}$$ units of B($$M$$1)$$uparrow$$ strength were observed in $$^{207,208}$$Pb just above neutron threshold, which correspond to an $$M$$1 cross section less than 10% of the total photoneutron cross section.

We measured pulse-height spectra of 16.7 MeV laser-Compton scattering photons with a 6"$$times$$5" NaI(Tl) detector for blank and three lead materials of 75.8, 50.9, and 25.9% transmissions at the NewSUBARU facility to investigate how the original Poisson distribution of the pulsed photons is modified after passing through thick-target materials. We present a well-prescribed method of determining the number of incident photons within 3.5% accuracy based on the response of the NaI(Tl) detector to the pulsed photon beams.

Photoneutron cross sections were measured for $$^{118}$$Sn, $$^{119}$$Sn, $$^{120}$$Sn, $$^{122}$$Sn, and $$^{124}$$Sn near neutron threshold with quasi-monochromatic laser-Compton scattering $$gamma$$-rays. A systematic analysis of the present photoneutron data and existing neutron-capture data is made using the $$gamma$$-ray strength function on the basis of the HFB+QRPA model of E1 strength supplemented with a pygmy dipole resonance, which was deduced from a previous study on $$^{116}$$Sn and $$^{117}$$Sn. Radiative neutron capture cross sections for two radioactive nuclei, $$^{121}$$Sn and $$^{123}$$Sn, are deduced through the $$gamma$$-ray strength function method.

Photoneutron cross sections for Au revisited; Measurements with laser Compton scattering $$gamma$$-rays and data reduction by a least-squares method

Photoneutron cross section measurements were made for Au in the entire energy range of the ($$gamma$$,n) channel based on a direct neutron-counting technique with quasi-monochromatic $$gamma$$-rays produced in inverse Compton-scattering of laser photons with relativistic electrons. The data were analyzed with a least-squares method to deduce photoneutron cross sections. The analysis significantly reduced experimental uncertainties compared with those resulted from the photon difference method. The result is compared with the previous data by direct neutron-counting with $$gamma$$-rays produced in positron annihilation in flight and by photoactivation with bremsstrahlung. The present data are in good agreement with the previous data near neutron threshold, while there remain some discrepancies between the present and the previous data above 10 MeV.

The $$gamma$$-ray strength function method ($$gamma$$SF method) is devised to indirectly determine radiative neutron capture cross sections for radioactive nuclei. This method is applied here to the $$^{107}$$Pd case. Photoneutron cross sections were measured for $$^{105,106,108}$$Pd near neutron threshold with quasi-monochromatic laser-Compton-scattering $$gamma$$-ray beams. These photoneutron cross sections as well as the reverse radiative neutron capture cross sections for $$^{104,105}$$Pd are used to provide constraints on the $$^{107}$$Pd(n,$$gamma$$) $$^{108}$$Pd cross section.

This manuscript presents photoneutron cross sections for $$^{96}$$Zr. Combining the present data with the previously published Zr data, we investigated the $$gamma$$-ray strength function for zirconium isotopes systematically. We present a unified picture of the $$gamma$$-ray strength function that consists of the HFB + QRPA model of E1 strength accompanied by an extra M1 strength attributable to giant M1 resonance. It is shown that the $$gamma$$-ray strength function reproduces both (g,n) and (n,g) cross sections for Zr isotopes consistently.

Photoneutron cross sections were measured for $$^{80}$$Se immediately above the neutron separation energy with quasimonochromatic $$gamma$$-ray beams to experimentally constrain the E1 $$gamma$$ strength function for $$^{79}$$Se. Two sets of the $$gamma$$ strength function and the level density that equally meet the experimental constraint predict largely different neutron capture cross sections for $$^{79}$$Se. Based on the Maxwell-averaged cross sections of the latest compilation complemented with the predicted cross sections for $$^{79}$$Se, we calculated $$sigma$$N values of the main s-process component using a phenomenological model and deduced empirical abundances of the weak s-process component.

Photoneutron cross sections were measured for $$^{80}$$Se near the neutron threshold energy with quasi-monochromatic $$gamma$$ rays. Using the $$^{80}$$Se($$gamma$$,$$n$$) cross section as experimental constraints on the E1 $$gamma$$ strength function, we estimate the neutron capture rates for $$^{79}$$Se. The solar abundance ratio of s-only nuclides $$^{80}$$Kr and $$^{82}$$Kr are analyzed in terms of the s-process branching at $$^{79}$$Se within the local approximation. The corresponding temperature and neutron density regimes are discussed in the light of the s-process scenario in massive stars.

Cross sections of the $$^{186}$$W, $$^{187}$$Re, $$^{188}$$Os($$gamma,n$$) reactions were measured using quasi-monochromatic photon beams from laser Compton scattering (LCS) with average energies from 7.3 to 10.9 MeV. The results are compared with the predictions of Hauser-Feshbach statistical calculations using four different sets of input parameters. In addition, the inverse neutron capture cross sections were evaluated by constraining the model parameters, especially the $$E1$$ strength function, on the basis of the experimental data. The present experiment helps to further constrain the correction factor $$F_{sigma}$$ for the neutron capture on the 9.75 keV state in $$^{187}$$Os. Implications of $$F_{sigma}$$ to the Re-Os cosmochronology are discussed with a focus on the uncertainty in the estimate of the age of the Galaxy.
