Abstract

Shielding experiments were started on 2007 using high-energy proton accelerator at Fermi Na- tional Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) under the collaborative study program of JASMIN: Japanese and American Study of Muon Interaction and Neutron Detection. In this series of papers entitled "Shielding experiments under JASMIN collaboration at Fermilab", the part of the results regarding neutron detection has been reported. This paper, as a first paper of the series, overview of the research activities are described, and experimental results on high-energy neutron transportation are presented in a viewpoint of neutron attenuation in steel shield and applicability of Moyer's model. In addition, deductions of a neutron spectrum in wide energy range between 1 eV and 100 MeV by means of the hybrid method using the current-readout Bonner sphere together with foil-activation technique are presented.
