Paper Abstract

Several d,n reaction reactions using pulsed deuteron beams have been investigated for possible pulsed 'white neutron' sources for use in a Fast Neutron Spectrometer to be used in an airport security system. It was found that a 5 to 6.6 MeV pulsed deuteron beam incident on a thick Beryllium target generates a good 'white neutron' source.
