Abstract

Four detectors, currently in use at GELINA for determination of the neutron flux spectra were intercompared. All the detectors combine low count rate and high transparency for the neutron flux. The four detectors (3 ionization chambers and one parallel plate proportional counter) and their advantages and disadvantages are briefly described. Two different methods of background determination are described, criticized and results are compared.
