abstract
Several methods are in use for the determination of the thermal to epithermal neutron fluence rate ratio (f) and the deviation of the epithermal neutron spectrum from the 1/E shape parameter (alpha). In our former work, it was proven that the recently developed and characterized Synthetic Multi-ELement Standard (SMELS) can be used for the fast verification of the stability of the irradiation parameters using the Au-Zr bare monitor method. However, this latter method using SMELS had a too low precision for an accurate determination of f and alpha. Therefore, the Cd-ratio for multi-monitor method using SMELS was investigated for two irradiation channels. As shown the material can also be used as a monitor for the calibration of an irradiation facility.
