Continuous energy neutron-incident neutron-production double differential cross sections were measured at the Weapons Neutron Research (WNR) facility of the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center. The energy of emitted neutrons was derived from the energy deposition in a detector. The incident-neutron energy was obtained by the time-of-flight method between the spallation target of WNR and the emitted neutron detector. Two types of detectors were adopted to measure the wide energy range of neutrons. The liquid organic scintillators covered up to 100 MeV. The recoil proton detectors that constitute the recoil proton radiator and phoswich type NaI (Tl) scintillators were used for neutrons above several tens of MeV. Iron and lead were used as sample materials. The experimental data were compared with the evaluated nuclear data, the results of GNASH, JQMD, and PHITS codes.
