Abstract

Using Monte Carlo methods the response matrix of a Bonner sphere spectrometer with a6LiI scintillator has been calculated. The response was calculated for 0, 5.08, 7.62, 12.7,20.32, 25.4, and 30.48 cm-diameter polyethylene spheres using twenty three monoenergetic neutron sources whose energy varies from 2.50E(-8) to 100 MeV. The response functions were interpolated to thirty one and fifty one neutron energies and compared with two response functions reported in the literature, a good agreement was found from this comparison. Main differences were found for neutrons whose energy is larger than 20 MeV.For UTA4 response functions differences are also noticed in the lower energy neutrons. These differences are mainly attributed to the cross sections libraries utilized in the different studies.
