Neutron-capture cross sections in the energy range of 0.01-10 MeV for Sm146,148,150,152 nuclei were calculated using the γ-ray strength and level density functions extracted from the Oslo-type experiments. The uncertainties in the cross-section values were determined using a Monte Carlo method. For the Sm148,150,152 isotopes, the calculated cross sections are in a good agreement with the existing experimental data and for the Sm146 nucleus, an experimental (n,γ) cross section is reported for the first time. The results are compared with the ENDF, EAF, and TENDL evaluations. Maxwellian-averaged cross sections were also calculated using the same input γSF and LD functions.
