Cross-section curves of (n,n’) and (n,2n) reactions on 113In leading to isomeric and ground states have been measured in the 2.1–2.9 and 13.5–14.8 MeV intervals using D-D and D-T neutrons, respectively. Results obtained for (n,n’) and (n,2n) reactions in the 13.5-14.8 MeV interval are in good agreement with the recent recommended values. Precise cross-sections measured for the 113In(n,n’)113mIn reaction in the 2.1–2.9 and 13.5–14.8 MeV ranges are needed for standardization of the excitation function. Cross-sections of the 113In(n,n’)113gIn reaction were also deduced around 14 MeV as a difference of σNE and the sum of the measured partial data. A comparison of the isomeric cross-section ratios for (n,n’) and (n,2n) reactions on 115In and 113In nuclei indicates the strong spin dependence of the n/γ branching ratio.
