Levels of 174Yb populated in average resonance neutron capture
Nuclear Physics A 757 (2005) 287-314
The primary gamma rays and energy levels in 174Yb were
investigated in average resonance neutron capture using tailored
neutron beams at 2 keV and 24 keV
and a pair spectrometer at the High Flux Reactor at Brookhaven.
Nearly 300 levels with spin up to J=4 are reported below 4 MeV.
The distribution of radiative strength in this nucleus was derived and is
analyzed with a giant dipole resonance and single-particle strength models.
The neutron binding energy in 174Yb was determined at 7464.4(3)keV.
