The present work concerns the preliminary analysis for the study of the (n,2n) reaction channel of the 165Ho isotope at near threshold energies: 10.1, 10.4 and 10.7 MeV (Eth=8.04 MeV). The cross sections for the population of both the ground state (Jπ=1+) and the isomeric state (Jπ=6-, Eex=139.8 keV) of the 164Ho product-nucleus were measured at the afore mentioned energies via the activation technique relative to the 27Al(n,α)24Na and 197Au(n,2n)196Au reactions. The quasi-monoenergetic neutron
