Abstract

Photo-nuclear reactions were investigated using a high power table-top laser. The laser system at the University of Jena ( I similar to 3-5 x 10(19) W cm(-2)) produced hard bremsstrahlung photons ( kT similar to 2(9 MeV) via a laser-gas interaction which served to induce ( gamma, p) and ( gamma, n) reactions in Mg, Ti, Zn and Mo isotopes. Several ( gamma, p) decay channels were identified using nuclear activation analysis to determine their integral reaction yields.
