Subject: [ RadSafe ] Accelerator activation cross sections
I am aware that an accelerator over 10 MeV can produce neutrons and therefore represents an activation capable machine for many targets (spallation sources are a good example). I am also aware that for some specific targets the threshold for neutron production may be as low as a few MeV. For neutron activation there are well tabulated reference cross sections such as the barns books. However, although more rare, there are a variety of direct proton and electron irradiation activation reactions possible at sufficiently high particle accelerator energies. Can anyone recommend a good reference for non-neutron based activation reaction cross sections similar to the barns books?
