Title: Tomographic Reconstruction of the Neutron Time-Energy Spectrum from a Dense Plasma Focus

Abstract

As a pulsed neutron source, a Dense Plasma Focus (DPF) has a wide range of applications including active interrogation of special nuclear materials. In order to measure the material properties of interest with high accuracy and low uncertainties, the properties of the neutron pulse generated by the DPF must be well characterized including the peak neutron energy and the neutron energy density. These quantities can be inferred by measuring neutron counts on a collection of radiation detectors at difference distances using time-of-flight (TOF) principles.
