Neutron spectrum calibration using the Cd-ratio for multi-monitor method with a synthetic multi-element standard

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.
