Abstract

An intercomparison of highly efficient neutron flux detectors is under way. The neutron spectrum investigated is that emitted from the moderator surrounding the neutron producing target of the Geel electron Linac and the energy of interest ranges from thermal to about 1 MeV. The results of two intercomparisons are reported here: one deals with a thin 6-Li glass scintillator and a 10-B ionization chamber. The second is concerned with the same 6-Li glass and a multiplate 235-U fission chamber. Good agreement is obtained in the first case for the range 4 eV to 2 KeV and in the second case from 8 eV to 100 keV.
