Abstract

The neutron neutron-capture cross cross-sections of 244Cm and 246Cm were measured by the time-offlight method in the energy range of 1-300 300 eV with an array of large germanium detectors in the Accurate Neutron-Nucleus Reaction measurement InstrumentANNRI at Material and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) of the Japan Proton Accelerator Research ComplexJ-PARC/MLF. The 244Cm resonances at around 7.7 and 16.8 8 eV and the 246Cm resonances at around 4.3 and 15.3 3 eV were observed in the capture reactions for the first time. The uncertainties of the obtained cross crosssections are 5.8% at the top of the first resonance of 244Cm and 6.6% at that of 246Cm. The rResonance analyses were performed for low-energy ones using the code SAMMY. The prompt y-ray spectra of 244Cm and 246Cm were also obtained. Eight and five new prompt y-ray emissions were observed in the 244Cm(n, y) and 246Cm(n, y) reactions, respectively.
