    • Abstract

       

      Industrial demand for neutrons constrains careful energy measurements. Elastic scattering of monoenergetic $\alpha$-particles from neutron collision enables neutron energy measurement by calculating the amount of deviation from the position where collision takes place. The neutron numbers with specific energy is obtained by counting the number of $\alpha$-particles in the corresponding location on the charged particle detector. Monte Carlo simulation and COMSOL Multiphysics5.2 are used to account for one-to-one collision of neutrons with $\alpha$-particles.
