Has a neutron energy spectroscopy ever been done?

This area is for discussions involving any fusion related radiation metrology issues. Neutrons are the key signature of fusion, but other radiations are of interest to the amateur fusioneer as well.

With the ions colliding at diffenrent velocities, some energy spectrum from the neutrons might be expected

Given a detector with a narrow detection energy and placing different amounts of moderator between the neutron source and the detector, with some NIST data the energy spectrum could be retrieved, because the neutrons would have lost a proportional amount of energy to the length of the moderator

With two different fusors at the same voltage i'd say that the spectrums would de different, bur it'd interesting to know it they would coincide at some point

Has it ever been performed by any user? I've looked for data but i could not find anything

Take a look at this post from several years ago:

damn, already done, and pretty professional to be honest

Thanks for the link, i looked for neutron spectroscopy, but the search engine splitted the words and was impossible to find anything
