Target thickness dependence of the Be(p,xn) neutron energy spectrum
2014 (English)In: INPC 2013 - INTERNATIONAL NUCLEAR PHYSICS CONFERENCE, VOL. 2, 2014, 11032- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We report on the current status of the analysis of an experiment performed at The Svedberg Laboratory, with the aim of investigating the produced neutron field by Be(p,xn) converters of three different thicknesses with a 30 MeV proton beam. The neutron energy spectra were measured with the Time of Flight technique using a BC-501 liquid scintillator with good n-γ Pulse Shape Discrimination properties, while the detected events were recorded simultaneously by two Data AcQuisition systems. In this paper, we present the experimental setup, the analysis technique and some preliminary results.
