Abstract

The γ -ray spectrum produced from the thermal neutron capture on enriched gadolinium targets (155Gd and 157Gd) were measured using the ANNRI Germanium Spectrometer at J-PARC. We have also built a γ -ray emission model of 158Gd decay, in which γ rays were classified into discrete prompt γ rays and continuum spectrum. We compared the data and our model, and found a fair agreement between them at the level of 26% over the γ -ray energy from 0.2 to 8.0 MeV. In this proceedings, the measured spectra and the model are described.
