Paper Abstract

Neutron kerma factors can be determined by measuring the cross sections, angular distributions, and charged-particle emission spectra from (n,z) reactions where z stands for the light charged particles, namely protons, deuterons, tritons, 3He, or (alpha) -particles, and combining these data with information on the heavy nuclear recoils. This approach is compared with other approaches of determining kerma factors. Data are given near 14 MeV for materials from carbon to niobium.
