Abstract

Data on the EAS neutron component obtained using the PRISMA-32 array are presented. Secondary neutrons are first moderated and then detected by specialized scintillation electron–neutron detectors (en-detectors) within 20 ms of the arrival of the shower front. The PRISMA-32 array comprises 32 en-detectors and has been operated in the continuous data acquisition mode for more than five years.
