Abstract
2200 m/s cross-section (sigma(0)) values for the Yb-174(n,gamma)Yb-175 reaction show an astonishingly large scatter (60-141 barn) in the literature. A recent measurement for absolute gamma-ray emission probabilities of Yb-175 seems to explain this anomaly by revealing uncertainties of the same magnitude in earlier determinations. Cross-section measurements based mainly on the activation method are, therefore, re-evaluated and the general use of the k(0)-standardization method is again strongly recommended for absolute neutron activation analysis.
