Measurement of the cross section for 27Al(n,2n)26Al (T1/2=7.16×105γ) reaction have been made at RTNS-II around 14 MeV using activation technique. The irradiation was performed as an add-on experiment of a main long term, high temperature irradiation on the various fusion materials with maximum fluence in the RTNS-II operation. Reliable cross sections have been obtained from 14.1 MeV to 14.7 MeV and the results are not fully consistent with the previous data.
