A Spectrometer for Neutron-In, Charged-Particle-Out Reactions

  • Roger W. Finlay


Recent appearance in the nuclear physics literature of high quality measurements of neutron-induced charged-particle reactions has helped to rekindle interest in this largely-ignored branch of nuclear reaction studies. Other contributors to this conference 1,2) describe results obtained with the techniques developed at the University of California at Davis. This contribution will focus on our efforts to develop and extend an alternative technique--using magnetic quadrupole lenses--which was pioneered at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. Since the Livermore methods have been previously described3,4), comparison of the design features of the Ohio University spectrometer with the Livermore system should provide an efficient approach to the subject.
