Abstract

With the advent of new facilities for radioactive ion beams it is necessary to develop neutron detection systems integrated with charged-particle ones. The integration of the neutron signal, especially in the case of neutron-rich beams, becomes a mandatory requirement in order to study the property of the nuclear matter in extreme conditions. For this reason, new detectors using new materials have to be built. NArCoS (Neutron ARray for COrrelation Studies) is a project aimed at the design of a new detector featuring both good energy and angular resolution sensitive to neutrons and charged particles with the same detection cell. We present in this contribution new results on the estimation of the detection efficiency and of the cross-talk performed via GEANT4 simulations. In addition we compare through experimental measurements a module with the EJ276 green shifted scintillator coupled with a silicon photodiode with respect to one featuring an EJ276 (standard version) and a silicon photomultiplier. © 2020 Societa Italiana di Fisica.
