FIG. 1 FIG. 1: Measured neutron flux spectrum at GEANIE. The relative flux magnitudes for the xenon and iron calibration datasets were determined exclusively using the 235U fission foil data, as the 238U efficiency was less stable. This figure is not normalized to any specific set of beam time. The flux shapemore » was determined by the 235U (238U) data for En ≤ 4 MeV (En > 4 MeV). Open markers are used here to demonstrate flux shape agreement between the two measurements. (color online)« less
