Abstract

Monoenergetic neutron reference fields are required for the investigation of the energy dependent response and the calibration of neutron detectors and dosemeters for various applications ranging from nuclear physics and nuclear data measurements to radiation protection. In a series of two separate publications the metrological aspects of the production and the measurement of fast neutrons are reviewed. In this first part, requirements for the nuclear reaction used to produce neutron field as well as methods for target characterisation and the general layout of reference facilities are discussed. The second part will focuse on the most important techniques for field characterisation. This includes the determination of the neutron fluence as well as the spectral neutron distribution and the determination of the fluence of contaminating photons.
