We have developed a multi-element deuterated liquid scintillator array for the study of reactions involving neutrons utilizing high-speed digital signal processing. A systematic study of (d,n) reactions at Ed = 16 MeV on 9Be, 11B, 13C, 14N, 15N, and 19F has been conducted from 10° to 160° (lab). In addition to previously unmeasured back-angle cross sections, this data can complement existing and future (3He,d) measurements as an analog to (p,γ) for astrophysics applications.
