Paper Abstract

The capabilities of a program named GNSR which is designed to calculate response functions and efficiencies of various gas-filled neutron detectors, are described. Included are recoil detectors filled with H2. 3He, 4He, and mixtures with commonly used quenching gases. A cylindrical detector geometry is assumed. The program calculates the detector response in various neutron beam configurations: point source, isotropic source, parallel beam, extended cylindrical source, and a plane rectangular localized source. The reliability of the code was tested with measurements in various quasi-monoenergetic neutron beams as also reported.
