19 The unfittable resonance at 4.6 keV Previous data:

20 The unfittable resonance at 4.6 keV Case 1: keep n =1.822 keV constant Litvinskiy et al. Fit from 3-8 keV E R =4.641±0.003 eV =2.895±0.003 eV

21 The unfittable resonance at 4.6 keV Case 2: start with n =2.026 keV and =2.376 eV (=JENDL) and vary everything Fit from 3-8 keV E R =4.617 keV =3.037 eV n =2.042 eV

22 The unfittable resonance at 4.6 keV Case 2: start with n =2.026 keV and =2.376 eV (=JENDL) and vary everything Fit from 3-8 keV E R =4.617 keV =3.037 eV n =2.042 eV ??????

23 Problem with multiple scattering corrections? SAMMY input: Multiple, finite slab

24 Multiple Scattering for 62 Ni in 63 Ni sample

25 62 Ni in 63 Ni sample n fixed to 1.8 keV: ~2.4 eV Fitting both: n =2.2 keV: =3.2 eV Including first fit of 59 Ni and 63 Ni resonances (p wave assignment) better agreement at thermal neutron energies

26 62 Ni in 63 Ni sample n fixed to 1.8 keV: ~2.4 eV Fitting both: n =2.2 keV: =3.2 eV Thermal cross sections: 62 Ni: 15 b (prev b) 63 Ni: 25 b (prev b) Including first fit of 59 Ni and 63 Ni resonances (p wave assignment) better agreement at thermal neutron energies

27 Conclusions: good progress on 63 Ni data, sample composition known to about 1% accuracy (mass ratios 63/62, 59/62 etc...) 62 Ni sample is too thick to fit the 4.6 keV resonance since multiple scattering corrections are much larger than the 0- scattering capture yield extraction of 62 Ni RP for that resonance is problematic (powder sample, characterization...) is it worth to remeasure that resonance with a thinner sample?
