Abstract

A new reaction, 59Ni(n,γ)Ni60, producing the highest energy of all known useful capture γ-rays is utilised for photon scattering experiments in the energy region of the giant dipole resonance. The γ line energies of the ground state transitions of the 59Ni(n, γ), 61Ni(n,γ) and 63Ni(n, γ) reactions were measured and found to be 11387.5 ± 1.7 keV, 10596.2 ± 3.7 keV and 9657.4 ± 2.8 keV respectively. A comparison is made of the intensity of the 11387.5 keV γ line with that obtained from other (n, γ) sources.
