Abstract

A second cold-neutron beam experimental station has been built as part of the renewal of the PGAA facility of the Budapest Research Reactor. This new station has been instrumented for neutron-induced prompt γ-ray spectroscopy, involving γ-γ coincidence measurements. The experimental setup is discussed, and its performance and our data analysis method in a case of a radioactive source coincidence experiment are presented.
