Abstract: A new method for the measurement of the neutron spectra has been developed (Wieslander et al., 2010, Lövestam et al., 2009). The technique is based on the measurement of γ-rays from the neutron-induced activity in a series of different metal disks followed by spectrum unfolding procedures. In this study, we measure for the first time with this technique a prompt fission neutron spectrum. Special attention is paid to the unfolding procedures and the estimation of the lowest measurable neutron fluence rate, as well as the estimation of sources of the uncertainties.
