A brief review of some of the recent experimental work on differential data measurements is given. The neutron, γ-ray and charged particle emission cross sections, measured using various interdisciplinary techniques, are discussed. Special attention is paid to reactions relevant to gas production, tritium breeding and formation of long-lived activation products. Some of the areas needing further experimental work are outlined.
KEYWORDS: differential data, cross section, excitation function, neutron emission, γ-ray emission, charged particle emission, gas production, tritium breeding, activation, transmutation
