86,78Kr+64,58Ni at 35 MeV/A

The reactions were conducted by S. Wuenschel at the Texas A&M University Cyclotron Institute in August 2009 and the results collected using the NIMRODISiS 4π array. The GEANT-3 [54] simulation code was used in conjunction with the GCALOR [55] package to evaluate the Neutron Ball efficiency. DENIS code [56] predictions are depicted by a solid line for the case without the charged particle array [52]. Below 10 MeV both calculations agree reasonably well. However, for the higher energy neutrons, the efficiency calculated by DENIS is lower than the results for the first detected neutrons in the GEANT-3 simulation (triangles). This results from the lack of neutron generation in DENIS and indicates that a significant number of secondary neutrons are generated by high energy neutrons. The electronic signal analysis will be addressed in six logical segments: the forward angle (3.6–45 degrees) Si, the ISiS (90–167 degrees) Si, the forward angle (3.6–90 degrees) CsI, the ISiS (90–167 degrees) CsI, the Neutron Ball, and the triggering logic. Particle identification can be done on either calibrated or uncalibrated data. If calibrated spectra are used, changes to the calibrations necessitate alterations in the particle identification
