Abstract

The (n,p) reaction cross-sections induced by 14–15 MeV neutrons have been analyzed on the basis of available data taken from the literature, using the multiple regression technique. An empirical formula describing the dependence of (n,p) reaction cross-sections on 5 parameters: neutron (N) and proton (Z) number, asymmetry factor ((N−Z)/A) where A=N+Z, neutron and proton binding energies (Bn, Bp) has been found. Its validity is checked and discussed.
