Abstract

The design of novel nuclear facilities, fusion as well as fission reactors, requires the knowledge of all properties of relevant materials, including the nuclear differential cross sections for a careful selection. The nuclear cross sections data for gas production via particle (neutron, proton, alpha, etc.) induced reactions are great importance in the domain in the fusion reactor technology, particularly in the calculation of nuclear transmutation rates, nuclear heating and radiation damage due to gas formation. In fusion reactor structures, a serious damage mechanism has been gas production in the metallic resulting from diverse nuclear reactions, mainly through (n, p) and (n, α), (n, d), (n, t). In the present study, by using equilibrium reaction mechanisms, the (n, xα) reaction alpha emission spectra for 27Al, 50,52Cr, 55Mn, 54,56Fe, 58,60Ni isotopes were investigated from 9 to 15 MeV incident neutron energy. The equilibrium results have been calculated by using the hybrid model, the geometry dependent hybrid model. Calculation results have been also compared with the available measurements in literature.
