Abstract: This paper presents 13C(n,α0)10Be cross section measurements performed at the Van de Graaff facility of the Joint Research Centre Geel. The 13C(n,α0)10Be cross section was measured relative to the 12C(n,α0)9Be cross section at 14.3MeV and 17.0MeV neutron energies. The measurements were performed with an sCVD (single-crystal chemical vapor deposition) diamond detector which acted as sample and as sensor simultaneously. A novel analysis technique was applied, which is based on the pulse-shape analysis of the detector’s ionization current. This technique resulted in an efficient separation of background events and consequently in a well-determined selection of the nuclear reaction channels 12C(n,α0)9Be and 13C(n,α0)10Be.
