Experimental Determinations of Neutron Detector Efficiencies
The most difficult part of obtaining neutron differential cross sections is the determination of the efficiency of the neutron detection system. One method is the use of sophisticated computer codes to calculate the absolute efficiency, as previously described by B. Anderson,1 and the other is to measure the efficiency experimentally, which will be discussed here.
