Abstract

Abstract A proportional counter assembly consisting of two gas counters having stable performance has been constructed. Its performance is studied using americium alpha particles as well as protons and alpha particles from neutron reactions. It has been possible to detect and measure the charged particles in the presence of strong neutron and gamma fields ever present in neutron reaction work. The targets are mounted internally and can be rotated from outside magnetically. The counter telescope can be used for angular distribution work.
