Abstract

Capture-gated detectors are suitable for neutron spectroscopy in mixed neutron and gamma-ray fields. They are less prone to neutron misclassification than standard organic scintillation detectors due to additional measured information available. This information is an additional capture pulse that typically follows the initial neutron scattering pulse. One of commercially available capture-gated detectors is a BC-523A detector. This detector was tested with several continuous-in-energy neutron sources to obtain the detector response and the results are presented in this paper.
