Two new experimental setups are being developed at European Commission’s Joint Research Centre in Geel, Belgium. The scintillator array ELISA (ELastic and Inelastic Scattering Array) is for high-quality neutron scattering cross section and angular distribution measurements. It has the capability to separate neutron-and photon-induced events via pulse-shape analysis. Inelastic scattering can also be resolved from the elastic channel. The ELISA setup and data analysis procedure were validated by performing measurements using carbon and iron samples. The DELCO spectrometer (Detection of ELectrons from COnversion) is intended for inelastic neutron scattering cross-section measurements in cases where the detection of γ rays is not feasible. The current status of DELCO, results from the first tests, and future prospects will be discussed.
