Abstract

The applicability of the14N(p,p’ γ1)14N nuclear reaction in the determination of the absolute abundance of14N, with a 2% uncertainty, was demonstrated at 4.3 MeV bombarding energy. The fact that almost all of the thick target γ-ray yield resulted from a resonance at Ep=4.0 MeV allowed to consider the necessary stopping-power corrections only at the energy of that resonance. Alternatively, the method was used to obtain the stopping power of 4.0 MeV protons in complex biological materials.
