Figure 1 Figure 1: Experimental setup for proton light yield measurements. The neutron beam traveled along the $x$-axis (illustrated with a dashed line) through the dual-PMT target scintillator cell. Eleven observation detectors were positioned at forward angles with respect to the incoming neutron beam.
