A NEUTRON TIME PF FLIGHT SPECTROMETER APPROPIATE FOR D-T PLASMA DIAGNOSTICS.
A neutron time-of-flight spectrometer with 2 m flight path for diagnostics of deuterium plasma in JET is presently under construction. An upgrade of this spectrometer to make it appropriate for 14 MeV neutron spectroscopy is presented here. It is suggested to use backscattering in a deuterium based scintillator. The flight path is 1-2 m and the efficiency is of the order of 2.10**-5 cm**-2. Results from test of principle are presented with estimates for neutron and gamma backgrounds.
