Abstract

An experimental investigation has been made on the extent of the angular correlations between the neutrons produced in the (n, 2n) reaction. The fast neutrons have been detected by means of scintillation counters and fast coincidence circuits. From measurements on bismuth and lead, the cross section of the (n, 2n) reaction was found to be 20-30% lower than the values obtained by activation or any other method insensitive to the direction of the emerging neutrons thus suggesting a correlation between the neutrons.
