Double differential (n, xp), (n, xd) cross sections of carbon and aluminum were measured for 65 and 75 MeV neutrons at angles between 12° and 70° using ΔE-E telescopes at a 7Li(p, n) neutron source facility at TIARA. The data at 12° were obtained by employing an annular geometry. The telescopes consisting of SSD and NaI(Tl) scintillator, experimental methods and the data reduction procedures are presented as well as the results. The carbon data are compared favorably with existing experimental data. The (n, xp) spectra of both carbon and aluminum agreed fairly well with theoretical calculations based on the intra-nuclear cascade model and the multi-step Hauser-Feshbach model including preequilibrium effects, but the (n, xd) spectra differ significantly from those calculations.
