    • Abstract

       

      Neutron energy responses of water sphere spectrometers (WSS) to 30 MeV have been calculated by means of Monte Carlo calculations, using the computer code MCNP4C with ENDF/B-VI.0 neutron cross-section. The calculations have been performed for ${}^3$He detector (typical SP9) placed inside 2, 3, 5, 8, 12 and 18-inch diameter moderating spheres composed of water in aluminum shell. These simulations included a detailed description of the geometry of the system. The newly calculated responses have been compared to polyethylene sphere responses.
