Cross sections for the 17O(n,p)17N (T1/2 = 4.7 s) reaction in the energy region between 13.7 and 14.9 were measured by the activation method using the Fusion Neutronics Source (FNS) at the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute. Cross sections for the reaction obtained were 23 ± 5, 11 ± 4, and <7 mb at 14.9 ± 0.1, 14.4 ± 0.1, and 13.7 ± 0.1 MeV, respectively. This work uniquely gives the experimental partial excitation function for the ~14-MeV reaction.
