Title

Spectrometer for Ion Determination in Fission Research (SPIDER)

The Spectrometer for Ion Determination in Fission Research (SPIDER) is an instrument created to measure fission mass yield. The instrument has a 2-5% accuracy rate for neutrons ranging from 0.01 eV to 20MeV. The mass is determined as a function of a fission products’ time of flight, energy, and path length.
