Ratios of cross sections for the reactions 54Fe(n,α)51Cr, 54Fe(n,p)54Mn, and 56Fe(n,p)56Mn were measured by the activation technique. In the 6- to 10-MeV energy range, quasi-monoenergetic neutrons produced by the D(d,n) source reaction were used, while additional data were obtained between 12 and 17 MeV using the T(d,n) source reaction. The cross-section ratios have accuracies between 1.5 and 4.5%.
