Characterization of neutron signal in Si-CsI telescope and measurement of the absolute neutron detection efficiency.

by FAZIA Collaboration - published on , updated on

The basic idea of this proposal, is firstly to validate this signature of neutron in a Si-CsI(Tl) telescope and secondly to measure the probability of such a process. To do this, we plan to use the simple proton recoil method : the (n,p) elastic scattering on a polyethylene (CH2)n target and two telescopes of the FAZIA demonstrator, to detect in coincidence: the proton in one telescope
and the elastically scattered neutron in the CsI(Tl) of the other telescope.
