Abstract
A set-up based on a 16-section NaI(Tl) scintillation detector has been created at the 500 m flight-path of the IBR-30 booster in Dubna. The total volume of the detector is 36 liters, and the geometric efficiency is 80 percent. This detector measures gamma-cascades from resolved neutron resonances to obtain gamma-multiplicity spectra from neutron capture events. The 10B loaded converter, positioned inside the detector, makes it possible to detect also neutron scattering events by measuring monoenergetic gamma- quanta from the 10B(n, (alpha) (gamma) ) reaction. Thus, the same detector simultaneously registers neutron capture and neutron scattering events in the target under identical conditions. This permits spins, neutron and radiative widths, and neutron strength functions of resonances, to be determined. Applications of the detector for gamma- multiplicity studies are presented in the example of several Hf, Sn and Sm isotopes.
