Abstract

Neutron-production double-differential cross sections for 870-MeV π+ and π and 2.1-GeV π+ mesons incident on iron and lead targets were measured with NE213 liquid scintillators by time-of-flight technique. NE213 liquid scintillators 12.7 cm in diameter and 12.7 cm thick were placed in directions of 15, 30, 60, 90, 120 and 150°. The typical flight path length was 1.5 m. Neutron detection efficiencies were derived from the calculation results of SCINFUL and CECIL codes. The experimental results were compared with the JAM code. The double differential cross sections calculated by the JAM code disagree with experimental data at neutron energies below about 30 MeV. JAM overestimates π+ -incident neutron-production cross sections in forward angles at neutron energies of 100 to 500 MeV.
