Abstract

The major work at Petten over the last few years has been the design and construction of an epithermal neutron beam facility in the HB11 beam tube. In this paper the various measurements performed are reviewed both for the free beam and also within phantoms. In addition to physical measurements, the foil configurations and phantom have been modelled using the Monte Carlo code MCNP. The results from these calculations are compared with the measured values and the reasons for any discrepancies are discussed.
