Collinear cluster tripartition as a neutron source - Evaluation of the setup parameters
Forthcoming experiments aimed at studying the mechanism of collinear cluster tripartition are planning to be performed with the new facility. Charged products will be registered with the double arm time -of-flight spectrometer composed of mosaics of PIN -diodes and MCP (micro channel plates) based timing detectors. Several te ns of 3He-filled counters will be gathered round the 252Cf source. In order to choose an optimal configuration of the neutron detector and other parameters of the experiment special modeling has performed using both "neutron barrel" and known MCNP code. Th e first test run of the new facility is in progress also its "neutron skin" in under construction. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.
