The Detector for Advanced Neutron Capture Experiments: A 4π BaF2 Detector for Neutron Capture Measurements at LANSCE Conference Paper uri icon


  • The Detector for Advanced Neutron Capture Experiments (DANCE) is a 162-element 4π BaF 2 array designed to make neutron capture cross-section measurements on rare or radioactive targets with masses as little as one milligram. Accurate capture cross sections are needed in many research areas, including stellar nucleosynthesis, advanced nuclear fuel cycles, waste transmutation, and other applied programs. These cross sections are difficult to calculate accurately and must be measured. The design and initial performance results of DANCE is discussed. © 2005 American Institute of Physics.
