Abstract:

Proton-recoil spectrometers have frequently been used in the past few years to measure spectra for neutron energies greater than approximately 1 MeV with the results depending strongly on the adequacy of the response matrix used in unfolding pulse-height spectra. By simultaneously measuring a fast-neutron spectrum by time-of-flight and by pulse-height unfolding, the adequacy of the response matrix and unfolding code could be determined. Spectra of several shapes and measurements with different time-of-flight resolution were used to validate the spectra obtained by unfolding the pulse-height spectrum. Author
