Abstract
An inexpensive spectrometer has been developed for the study of charged particle reactions induced by 22 MeV neutrons. The principal components of the spectrometer are three flat multiwire proportional counters which act as energy loss detectors and a curved plastic scintillator as an energy detector. This novel combination provides background suppression, particle identification, and energy resolution of < 0.7 MeV for 6 - 22 MeV protons and 8 - 20 MeV deuterons. The spectrometer allows the simultaneous accumulation of data over an angular range of 70 degree(s) with an angle resolution < 5 degree(s) (FWHM), and thus makes feasible angular distribution studies of (n,p) and (n,d) reactions on selected targets. The spectrometer has been recently extended for the study of reactions induced by 60 - 200 MeV neutrons.
