MCNPX Simulations for Neutron Cross Section Measurements
2010 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
This thesis presents MCNPX simulations of the SCANDAL set-up used at the Theodor Svedberg Laboratory for neutron scattering cross-section measurements. The thesis describes processes and data important for the upcoming off-line data analysis. In the experiment, neutrons scattered off the target are converted to protons which are stopped in scintillator crystals. The results of presented simulations include a description of the proton spectra in dependence of the neutron-to-proton conversion angle, calculation of the hit position gates and a study of the converter describing the role of its chemical composition and also the role of other plastic scintillator on the proton spectra.
