Abstract: The technique for measuring neutron activation cross-sections using wide energy neutron beams (NAXSUN) was recently developed at JRC-Geel. This method is based on the detection of the gamma activity induced by the activation of the samples in different but overlapping neutron fields and following an unfolding procedure. In the present work, measurements of the cross-section functions by the NAXSUN technique for the (n,a), (n,2n), (n,p) and (n,3n) reactions on rhenium isotopes 185Re and 187Re were performed. The results are the first experimental data for the mentioned reaction cross-sections in the energy range 13.0-19.5 MeV. The obtained data are of interest for possible applications of Re in nuclear technology and medicine.
