Abstract

High-resolution neutron transmission and differential elastic-scattering measurements were made for a 56Fe-enriched iron target at the Oak Ridge Electron Linear Accelerator (ORELA). A natural iron target was used for transmission measurements below 160 keV. The data were analyzed from 5 to 850 keV. Parameters were obtained for 33 ℓ = 0 and 242 ℓ > 0 resonances. New 6Li-glass transmission data were acquired for two 60Ni-enriched sample thicknesses. The neutron width for the 2.253-keV resonance was determined to be 59.3 ± 0.6 meV and the radiation width 553 ± 50 meV.
