Determination of the neutron detection efficiency of an NE213 scintillator for En = 2.5 to 16 MeV using the 2 H(d, n)3 He reaction


Journal Article

The absolute efficiency of an NE213 liquid scintillator of 12.7 cm diameter and 5.08 cm thickness was measured in the neutron energy range 2.5-16 MeV using the 2H(d, n)3He reaction as a source of monoenergetic neutrons. The efficiencies were measured at the time-of-flight facility of Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL). The experimental data are compared to calculations from the Monte Carlo code NEFF of Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, Braunschweig, Germany (PTB).
