    Abstract: The general neutron induced reaction cross sections with the projectile neutron energy are being studied. As a result of this, the compound nucleus is formed through de-excitation of the selected nuclei by emitted particles γ and 2n with the reaction cross section at intermediate energy. The production of residual nuclide by neutron induced reactio... Show More

    Abstract: Radiation detection for nuclear security frequently employs neutron counting and scintillation systems simultaneously. One potential issue, particularly when searching a large area, is understanding the ambient (or background) response of these systems throughout the operation. This is easily mitigated for the scintillation system but remains a pro... Show More

    Abstract: Radon is the most harmful natural contaminant in the indoor atmosphere of the buildings. The noble gas, after cigarette smoke, is the biggest cause of lung cancer, and today the study of its diffusion, distribution, and concentration around the world has attracted many researchers in the field of radiation protection and environmental health. Typic... Show More
