Measurements of the neutron capture cross sections of rhodium, thulium, gold, and iridium were carried out in the 0.5- to 3.0-MeV energy range. The cross sections are deduced from the capture gamma-ray spectra recorded by a NaI spectrometer consisting of central and annulus detectors. Time-of-flight techniques are used to improve the signal-to-background ratio. When comparison is possible, the present results are found to be in general agreement with the previous data.
