Measurements of the fast neutron energy spectrum at the ISIS spallation source are reported. The measurements were performed with a Proton Recoil Telescope consisting of a thin plastic foil placed in the neutron beam and two scintillator detectors. Results in the neutron energy range 30 MeV < En< 80 MeV are in good agreement with Monte Carlo simulations of the neutron spectrum.© 2013 IOP Publishing Ltd and Sissa Medialab srl.
