Real-Time Multidetector Neutron Spectrometer

  • D. I. Logvinov

We explain a new approach to constructing a real-time neutron spectrometer, using several detectors with different spectral characteristics and coprocessing the data using a pre-trained neural network. We present the results of simulation and experimental studies on a prototype, demonstrating the effectiveness of this approach.
