Abstract

Neutron spectra from the 2H(d,n)3He and 9Be(d,n)10B neutron source reactions and a Pu-Be source were measured by a pulse height response spectrometer behind slabs of water, graphite, sand, Pb, Al and Fe up to 20 cm thicknesses. A comparison of the measured and the calculated data has given new results for the validation of different data libraries.
