Abstract: The cross sections for the reactions 204Pb(n, n'gamma)204mPb, 204Pb(n, 2n)203Pb, 204Pb(n, 2n)203m1Pb, 204Pb(n, 3n)202mPb, 206Pb(n, 3n)204mPb, 206Pb(n,alpha)203Hg and 208Pb(n, p)208Tl were determined at the IRMM van de Graaff laboratory in the neutron energy range from 14 to 21 MeV. Both natural and enriched samples were irradiated with neutrons produced via the 3H(d,n)4He reaction. The induced activities were determined with gamma-ray spectrometry using a HPGe detector in a low-background shield. Neutron fluences were determined with the well-known cross section of the 27Al(n,alpha)24Na reaction. Enriched samples were essential to determine the cross sections for the reactions with 204mPb and 206mPb isomers in the final state. Accurate results for reactions with 204;206Pb as target nuclei with natural lead samples were enabled through a precise measurement of the isotopic ratios. For a first investigation of the consequences of the present data for nuclear reaction models they were confronted with calculations based on global parameter systematics in a phenomenological and in a microscopic approach and with parameters selected to reproduce the available experimental data. The TALYS code was used for the former two calculations involving parameter systematics while the STAPRE code was used for the latter calculation.
