The data acquisition system of the neutron time-of-flight facility n- TOF at CERN
Rights accessRestricted access - publisher's policy
The n_TOF facility at CERN has been designed for the measurement of neutron capture, fission and (n; n) crosssections with high accuracy. This requires a flexible and—due to the high instantaneous neutron flux—almost dead time free data acquisition system. A scalable and versatile data solution has been designed based on 8-bit flash-ADCs with sampling rates up to 2GHz and 8 Mbyte memory buffer. The software is written in C and Cþþand is running on PCs equipped with RedHat Linux.
