An SCA ASIC-based multi-channel readout system for a prototype multi-purpose TPC at CSNS Back-n white neutron source

The back-streaming white neutron source (Back-n) at China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS), which has excellent energy spectrum and good time resolution, provides superior conditions for neutron

1H(n,el) as a Cross Section Reference in a White Source Neutron Beam With the fissionTPC

We provide a quantitative description of a method to measure neutron-induced fission cross sections in ratio to elastic hydrogen scattering in a white-source neutron beam with the fission Time

Bragg curve spectroscopy for improved fission fragment identification

We report on the development of Bragg curve spectroscopy techniques to improve fission fragment identification in the measurement of independent fission product yields. The NIFFTE collaboration’s

Fission fragment angular anisotropy in neutron-induced fission of U235 measured with a time projection chamber

Fission fragment angular distributions can provide an important constraint on fission theory, improving predictive fission codes, and are a prerequisite for a precise ratio cross section measurement.

Measurement of the $^{239}$Pu(n,f)/$^{235}$U(n,f) Cross-Section Ratio with the NIFFTE fission Time Projection Chamber

The $^{239}$Pu(n,f)/$^{235}$U(n,f) cross-section ratio has been measured with the fission Time Projection Chamber (fissionTPC) from 100 keV to 100 MeV. The fissionTPC provides three-dimensional

Neutron-induced fission fragment angular distributions, anisotropy, and linear momentum transfer measured with the NIFFTE fission time projection chamber

The Neutron Induced Fission Fragment Tracking Experiment (NIFFTE) collaboration has performed measurements with a fission time projection chamber (fissionTPC) to study the fission process by



Study of sparking in Micromegas chambers


Progress in experimental high‐energy physics is limited in practice by two complementary aspects: the types of beam particles available with useful intensities and energies, and the characteristics

Total kinetic energy release in Pu 239 ( n , f ) post-neutron emission from 0.5 to 50 MeV incident neutron energy

The average total kinetic energy $(\overline{TKE})$ in $^{239}\mathrm{Pu}(n,f)$ has been measured for incident neutron energies between 0.5 and 50 MeV. The experiment was performed at the Los Alamos
