Abstract:

This report describes the experiments performed to measure the energy spectrum of neutrons released in certain atomic-weapons tests in Operation Greenhouse. The measurements were made of two types 1 the time-of-flight measurements designed to establish the fission neutron spectrum down to about 3 Mev energy, and 2 the so-called Tenex Temperature-Neutron Experiment measurements designed to obtain the velocity distribution of neutrons produced by the deuterium-tritium fusion reactions.
