Title: Measurements and calculations of the response of large single-element scintillators to neutrons at energies between 25 and 200 MeV

Abstract

Because neutrons are uncharged, their detection usually involves organic scintillators that use nuclear reactions on hydrogen and carbon to produce charged particles. The energy deposited by these particles in the scintillator results in detectable light production. This paper uses results reported in recent papers to describe the operation of neutron detectors at energies below 200 MeV. 4 refs., 8 figs.
