At the Weapons Neutron Research Facility part of the Los Alamos National Lab in Los Alamos, NM, the quasielastic scattering experiment was performed on flight path 15R in the summer of 2009. The cross-section for this experiment is being measured at intermediate incident neutron energies, ranging up to 800 MeV. Scattered protons from deuteron breakup travel through a magnetic spectrometer on beam right, consisting of a thin ?E scintillator, three drift chambers, two permanent magnets, and two thin scintillators. An array of nine two-meter high plastic scintillators detect scattered neutrons on beam left.
