Détecteur 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 :
DEMON stands for « Détecteur 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 is managed by a scientific committee (CSD).
