Theoretical calculation of the yield functions for a Neutron multiplicity analyzer
Abstract
The yield functions for a neutron multiplicity analyzer of a neutron monitor NM64 have been calculated for the observed multiplicities 1, 2, 3 and 4. The accuracy of these functions, which is limited by the scattering in the mean lifetimes of the neutrons in the monitor, has been given.
