Abstract

Determination of thermal to fast neutron flux ratio (ffast) and fast neutron flux (øfast) is required for fast neutron reactions, fast neutron activation analysis, and for correcting interference reactions. The ffast and subsequently øfast were determined using the absolute method. The ffast ranged from 48 to 155, and the øfast was found in the range 1.03×1010-4.89×1010 ncm-2s-1. These values indicate an acceptable conformity and applicable for installation of the fast neutron facility at the MNA research reactor.
