Differential cross sections for elastic and inelastic Raman scattering from 175Lu and 181Ta were measured. Five photon energies between 8.5 and 11.4 MeV were used and were obtained from the (n, γ) reaction on Ni and Cr using thermal neutrons. The results are compared with calculations using a modified simple rotator model (SRM) of the giant dipole resonance (GDR) in which the effect of Delbrück scattering was incorporated. In general, fair agreement between theory and experiment is obtained. A new set of GDR parameters is extracted, based on photon scattering data and, as expected, yield better agreement between experimental and predicted cross sections.
