The cross sections of inelastic neutron acceleration have been obtained from the excitation curves for 113mIn and 115mIn using the principle of detailed balance, and have been calculated theoretically. The average energy transferred to the neutron in a single collision is positive below 0.25 MeV and both isomers are not the usual moderators, but are the "accelerators" of neutrons.
