Abstract

Cross-sections for the photon-induced particle-emission reactions (gamma,n), (gamma,p), and (gamma,alpha) are given for all natural isotopes from Ti to Bi. The target nuclei are assumed to be in their ground states, except for Ta-180 which is naturally occurring as the isomer Ta-180m. The cross-sections are calculated in a statistical model (Hauser-Feshbach) approach and covering an energy range from threshold up to 7.35 MeV above the threshold (14.7 MeV above threshold for (gamma,alpha) reactions). The results are intended to aid conception and analysis of experiments which can also be used to test the methods involved in predicting astrophysical reaction rates for nucleo-synthesis.
