α-Particle induced reactions on rhodium



Excitation functions for103Rh (α,xn);x = 1–4 and103Rh (α,αxn);x = 1–3 reactions were measured up to 50 MeV bombarding energy using stacked foil activation technique and high purity germanium (HPGe) γ-ray spectroscopy method. The experimental results were compared with calculations considering equilibrium as well as pre-equilibrium hybrid model of Blann (ALICE/90). It is found that the initial exciton configurationn 0 = 4(4p0h) gives fairly good agreements for (α,xn) reactions. There seems to be indication of direct inelastic scattering effects in (α,αxn)-type of reactions.
