Abstract: Neutron capture cross section measurements at the Geel Electron Linear Accelerator (GELINA) rely on the use of H-free deuterated benzene C6D6 liquid scintillators. A new design of Aluminium canned C6D6 detectors was studied to improve the performances (high gamma efficiency vs. low neutron sensitivity) of the cylindrical previous ones: on the basis of a truncated 5-sides pyramid, the new detectors were developed and tested in Geel, and used in a preliminary capture cross section measurement on 197Au in a 4 detectors setup.
