The TOFOR neutron spectrometer and its first use at JET
2006 (English)In: Review of Scientific Instruments: Proceedings of the 16th topical conference on High-Temperature Plasma Diagnostics 7-11 May 2006 Williamsburg, Virginia, 2006, 840- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
A time-of-flight neutron spectrometer (TOFOR) has been developed to measure the 2.45 MeV d+d3He+n neutron emission from D plasmas. The TOFOR design features the capability to operate at high rates in the 100 kHz range, data collection with fast time digitizing and storing, and monitoring of the signals from the scintillation detectors used. This article describes the principles of the instrument and its installation at JET and presents preliminary data to illustrate the TOFOR performance as a neutron emission spectroscopy diagnostic.
