A time-of-flight neutron spectrometer (TOFOR) has been developed to measure the 2.45 MeV d+d→ He3 +n neutron emission from D plasmas. The TOFOR design features the capability to operate at high rates in the 100 kHz range, data collection with fast time digitizing and storing, and monitoring of the signals from the scintillation detectors used. This article describes the principles of the instrument and its installation at JET and presents preliminary data to illustrate the TOFOR performance as a neutron emission spectroscopy diagnostic. © 2006 American Institute of Physics.
