The Measurements of neutron energy spectrum at 180 degrees with the mercury target at J-PARC

Matsuda, Hiroki ; Meigo, Shinichiro  ; Iwamoto, Hiroki 

Spallation neutron at 180 degrees is of important for an evaluation of radiation protection for ADS (Accelerator-Driven System) and the nuclear physics. It was, however, quite difficult to measure it. We measured the energy spectrum of spallation neutron at 180 degrees at the proton transport beam line (3NBT) to MLF (Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility) on J-PARC by the NE213 liquid scintillator. The irradiated proton energy was 3 GeV, and the intensity was 1$$times$$10$$^{10}$$ protons above. The neutron energy was determined by Time-Of-Flight method with n-gamma discrimination. We also simulated the energy spectrum by using PHITS code and compared with measured spectrum. In this paper, the overview of the experiment and the results are described.
