tecteur Modulaire de Neutrons

DEMON is issued from a belgian-french collaboration. It has been funded for an equal support by the belgian FNRS and the french IN2P3. It has been designed and conceived by a collaboration consisting of four laboratories :

  • ULB, Brussels, Belgian
  • IReS, Strasbourg, France
  • LPC, Caen, France
  • UCL, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium.
    It is operative since 1994.

DEMON stands for « tecteur Modulaire de Neutrons » (modular neutron detector). It consists of a hundred individual large size liquid scintillator cells which characteristics allow to acceed to the angular and energy distributions of the emitted neutrons over a large energy range. The associated electronics has been developed in the VXI standard. A proton rejection system (SYREP) is used to avoid proton contamination in the neutron spectra. DEMON is usually associated to master detectors.

DEMON has been conceived essentially to study the reaction mechanisms. But it can also be used in many other domains.

DEMON is managed by a scientific committee (CSD).
