Neutron Energy Spectra from Proton Irradiated Thick Li Targets
At our laboratory thick metallic Li targets are used to generate pseudo-white neutron spectra. We use these spectra for a quick determination of the efficiency of our time-of-flight neutron detectors. This efficiency is obtained as the ratio of measured and calculated spectra. We describe our procedure.
