Title: Neutron Detection in the A2 Collaboration Experiment on Neutral Pion Photo-production on Neutron

Abstract

Neutron detection is of crucial importance for the neutral pion photo-production study on a neutron target that now is in progress at MAMI. Two electro-magnetic calorimeters, based on NaI and BaF2 crystals, are used in the A2 experiment. While these calorimeters are optimized for pion decay photon detection, they have a reason able efficiency for neutron detection also. The paper describes the method, which has been used to measure this efficiency using the same data taken for pion photo-production study on deuterium target with tagged photon been of 800 MeV maximal energy. As a result, the detection efficiency is a rising function of neutron momentum that reaches 40% near 1 GeV/c.
