Abstract
In measurements of fast neutron spectra by a 3He semiconductor detector, the unfolding method is not usually required. The unfolding method based on principle of maximum likelihood that incorporates the Gaussian approximation of counting statistics is developed and implemented in the MLMHE3 numerical code for application in fast neutron spectrometry by 3He semiconductor detectors. The derived likelihood equations have been solved using method of the singular value decomposition of the response matrix. For this inverse problem, the detector responses were generated by the Monte Carlo technique.
