Fast-neutron-spectrum measurements for the thick-target /sup 9/Be(d,n)/sup 10/B reaction at E/sub d/ = 7 MeV
Description: Spectra of neutrons with energies greater than or equal to 800 keV which are emitted from a metallic beryllium target that is thick enough to completely stop 7-MeV incident deuterons are measured using organic scintillators and the pulse-beam time-of-flight method. Data are acquired for twenty different emission angles in the laboratory over the range 0 to 155 degrees. The resulting information on the energy-angle detail of neutron emission is then employed in calculations which are performed in order to examine certain effects of the anisotropic neutron production on typical measurements of integral fast-neutron reaction cross sections. 28 refs.
