Abstract

A neutron spectrometer based both on the track position identification and the energy measurement of recoiling protons from a hydrogenous radiator is proposed. The expected performance limits of this spectrometer with regard to energy resolution, efficiency and counting rate are evaluated for five different configurations. The results show the possibility of deriving an optimized spectrometer design with an energy resolution up to 1% at 14 MeV. In particular the application of the spectrometer for the ion temperature measurement on NET (Next European Torus) is presented.
