The 94Zr(n,)95Zr and 90Zr(n,p)90Ym reaction cross sections were measured at neutron energies En of 2.45 MeV and 9.85 ± 0.38 MeV (average) using an activation and off-line gamma-ray spectrometric technique. In addition to these, the thermal neutron capture cross sections of 94Zr(n,)95Zr and 96Zr(n,)97Zr were also measured using the same technique. The experimentally measured neutron cross-section data were compared with the latest available evaluated nuclear data libraries from ENDF/B-VII, JENDL 4.0, and TENDL 2010.
