A new array of four Deuterated Benzene (C6D6) detectors has been installed at the Gaerttner Linear Accelerator Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for the purpose of measuring neutron capture cross sections in the keV region. Measurements were performed on samples of Ta181 in the unresolved resonance region (URR) using a filtered-beam technique, by which a 30 cm iron filter was placed in a white-spectrum neutron beam to remove all time-dependent γ-ray background and all neutrons except those transmitted through resonance-potential interference “windows” in the iron. The resulting filtered beam was effectively a quasimonoenergetic neutron source, which was used for performing measurements on isotopes with narrow level spacings in the URR. The capture cross-section results obtained for two thicknesses of tantalum are in agreement with those documented in the JEFF-3.2 library, as are the average resonance parameters obtained via a fit to the data using the sammy-fitacs code.
