Abstract: A neutron spectrometer has been developed for use inside a fast neutron assembly. The spectrometer is small and insensitive to gamma radiation. An optical system was developed which could collect about 80 per cent of the light from an NE213 liquid scintillator and transmit it along a 450mm quartz light guide to a high performance photomultiplier. To enable the detector to be used as a nanosecond timing spectrometer, several calibration measurements were made of the detector efficiency and response to monoenergetic neutrons.
