A double-scatter time-of flight neutron spectrometer has been obtained by the Nuclear Engineering department of the University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR). As this device was an experimental prototype which was never brought to full operation, the chance to work with two of the original builders of the spectrometer at EG&G Idaho was an excellent opportunity. Part of the work being done with the detector is the development of a PC-based software package for machine control, data acquisition, and data reduction. It is this part of the project which has been supported by UMR’s Opportunities for Undergraduate Research Experience (OURE) program.
