We have developed a new directional fast-neutron detector based on double proton recoil in two separated planes of plastic scintillators with continuous position-sensitive readout in one of two dimensions. This method allows the energy spectrum of the neutrons to be measured by a combination of peak amplitude in the first plane and time of flight to the second plane. The planes are made up of 100-cm long, 10-cm high paddles with photomultipliers at both ends, so that the location of an event… Expand
