    Abstract:
    The photodisintegration cross section of the radioactive nucleus Am 241 has been obtained using activation techniques and monoenergetic γ-ray beams from the HIγS facility. The induced activity of Am 240 produced via the Am241(γ,n) reaction was measured in the energy interval from 9 to 16 MeV utilizing high-resolution γ-ray spectroscopy. The experimental data for the Am241(γ ,n) reaction in the giant dipole resonance energy region are compared with statistical nuclear-model calculations. © 2010 The American Physical Society.
