Abstract: The neutron total and capture cross sections of 103Rh have been measured in the energy region from 0.01 eV to 1 keV at the Time-of-Flight facility GELINA of the Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements in Geel (B). The transmission measurements on two samples of rhodium were carried out at a 50-m flight path using a Li-glass scintillator. The capture-detection system, which is installed at a 14.5-m flight path, is based on the total-energy detection principle. The system consists of two C6D6 detectors and a 10B ionisation chamber that determines the shape of the neutron flux. A pulse-height weighting function was used to ensure that the efficiency for a neutron-capture event was independent from the gamma cascade. The data have been normalized to the well-isolated and saturated 103Rh resonance at 1.26 eV. The resonance parameters for 103Rh were obtained from a simultaneous shape analysis of the capture and transmission data using the REFIT code.
