Paper Abstract

Detection of outgoing neutrons after pion absorption on nuclei is discussed. The importance of good energy and position resolution together with the knowledge of integral and differential neutron detection efficiency in the range from 10 MeV to 300 MeV is emphasized. Light response coefficients recently obtained for typical organic scintillators are given and Monte Carlo codes for neutron detection efficiency calculations are reviewed. Detection characteristics for neutrons of the large area position-sensitive TOF detector and the 4(pi) detector LADS, both developed at PSI to study pion-nucleus absorption, are described for the cases of kinematically complete multi-particle final states.
