Abstract : In a series of experiments in which the scattering of fast neutrons from small cylinders of various materials was investigated, a pulsed source of bremsstrahlung-produced neutrons was obtained by irradiating a lead target with 14-nsec bursts of 34-MeV electrons from the General Atomic Electron Linear Accelerator. This memorandum presents the differential energy spectra of the source neutrons for the three angles of incidence used. (Author)
