The (n,p), (n, α), (n, 2n) and (n, γ) reaction cross sections on90,92Zr,92,97,98,100Mo,78,81Br,181Ta,140Ce target nuclei have been measured forEn=14.73±0.05 MeV neutrons using the activation technique. The induced γ-ray activities of the irradiated samples and their monitor foils were measured by using HPGe detector. The cross sections are compared with the existing results. The experimental uncertainties are between 3% and 10% in most cases.
