Calculation the Alpha Yields from (p,α) Reactions for Fe and Se Element Targets

Abstract

Stopping power and alpha yields from (p,α) reactions for five medium target elements in the energy range from threshold energy up to 31.6 MeV proton energies have been calculated. Complete energy range starting from threshold energy for each reaction have been analyzed and the adopted cross sections were reproduced in fine steps of incident proton energy in 0.01 MeV intervals with the corresponding errors. The stopping power according to Zeigler formula was used in order to obtain the alpha yield for each reaction.
