Neutron detection with MoNA-LISA for nuclear structure and reaction studies
Argonne Physics Division Seminar - 3:30 PM, 22 May 2017
Building 203, Conference Room R-150

The Modular Neutron Array and Large multi-Institutional Scintillator Array (MoNA-LISA) were designed to detect fast neutrons from the decay of neutron-rich nuclei. The time-of-flight of the neutrons is used to measure their energy and momentum. Together with the energy and momentum of the daughter nucleus from the decay, the energies of neutron-unbound states can be determined. Recently, MoNA-LISA has also been used to detect neutrons in reaction experiments. In this seminar, the most recent results and a look at ongoing analyses will be presented as well as an outlook on the future uses of MoNA-LISA.
