Abstract

The manganous sulfate bath method for neutron source calibrations at the K-SRI is described together with the measurement of neutron emission rate of a source and the corrections applied for capture by competing nuclei of neutrons, and thermal neutron leakage, neutron absorption in the source itself. The commercially available neutron sources (Am-Be, $^{252}Cf$) for the calibration checks of neutron radiation instruments in the MeV range are considered in this paper.
