Neutron energy spectra from the thick target beryllium 9(d,n) boron 10 reaction.
Australian Atomic Energy Commission
The energy spectrum of neutrons emitted when deuterons impinge on a thick beryllium target has been measured using an NE213 scintillation detector and the time-of-flight technique. Spectra were measured at angles of 0, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120 and 150º for deuteron energies of 1.4, 1.8, 2.3 and 2.8 MeV. Tables are presented of these angle-dependent energy spectra, the angle-integrated energy dependent yields, and the total neutron yield as a function of deuteron energy.
