Abstract : A method is described for measuring neutron energy spectra with nuclear emulsions. The normal concentration of hydrogen in the emulsion serves as the proton radiator. It is concluded that neutron groups separated by 400 keV or more and in the energy range of 2 to 15 MeV can be resolved. Preliminary results from the study of the C12(n,n')3 alpha reaction using emulsions are also discussed. (Author)
