Paper Abstract

The lineshape of a neutron spectrometer consisting of a single deuterated anthracene scintillation crystal has been investigated as a function of neutron energy from 7 - 30 MeV. The spectrometer has been used to study backscattering of 14 MeV neutrons by samples containing carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen. The results indicate that it should be possible to analyze bulk samples for these elements by means of this technique.
