Title of the Project: Measurements, EXFOR Compilation and theoretical study of nuclear data

Duration: 01/04/2012 – 31/03/2017

Sanction Number:

  • 2012/36/17-BRNS Dated 14.08.2012
  • 2012/36/17-BRNS/0216 Dated 25.04.2013
  • 2012/36/17-BRNS/11743 Dated 04.03.2016

Accomplishments of the project:

  • 70Zn(n,g)71Znm reaction cross sections measured at 2.25, 2.6, 2.8 and 3.5 MeV incident proton energies at FOTIA, BARC. The experimental results are compared with theoretical results of Talys-1.6. Developed EPEN code.
  • Coordinated EXFOR compilation in India and ~200 new EXFOR entries were successfully submitted to NDS,IAEA.
  • 40 entries completed and 200 entries also supervised.
  • Evaluation of 7Li(p,n)7Be reaction near threshold completed and the code EPEN was developed.
  • Six journal publications and seven conference proceedings/technical reports produced.
