Abstract: The paper describes an alternative approach to use the Los Alamos type Recoil Proton Telescope for fluence measurements of mono-energetic neutrons with energies above 1 MeV. Traditionally, this type of detectors are used in a 3-coincidence acquisition mode (proportional counter – proportional counter – end-detector). This study shows that by only using the end-detector and a background reduction method similar results are obtained, but with considerably less complexity in the measurement set-up.
