Campaign to Measure Cosmic Ray Neutrons

The ENPAI research team, part of the Advanced Nuclear Technology (ANT) group at UPC Barcelona, is proud to announce a new campaign to measure neutrons generated by cosmic rays!
This innovative project utilizes the newly developed HENSA++ spectrometer, built by IFIC(CSIC, Valencia) and ENPAI (UPC). The campaign is a collaboration with the IAXO dark matter experiment team at the University of Zaragoza.
Key Points:
Two-week campaign to measure background neutron levels for the IAXO dark matter experiment.

HENSA++ spectrometer: State-of-the-art neutron detection system for high-efficiency measurements.
Two-phase approach: Outdoor measurements (started today!) to avoid interference, followed by indoor measurements to study wall influence.
Goal: Deeper understanding of cosmic ray neutrons and aiding IAXO experiment design and sensitivity.
