Abstract: The time-of-flight technique with a new method for generating short radiation bursts has been used to measure the neutron spectrum of the accelerator-based source with a stationary proton beam. Specific problems arising thereby and methods for solving them are described. The measured spectrum of neutrons in the reaction 7Li(p, n)7Be at a proton energy of 1.915 MeV is presented and compared to the calculation. This spectrum is shown to comply with the requirements for the neutron beam used in neutron capture therapy.
