Abstract : A thick Be target was irradiated with a 5-48 MeV alpha-beam. Neutron spectra were taken with a stilbene spectrometer at 15 degree intervals. After appropriate weighting and summation the simulated Am-Be source spectrum was obtained. This spectrum is compared with the spectrum obtained directly from a source and with spectra published by other authors. (Author)
