Abstract content <br> &nbsp; (Max 300 words)

The challenge of achieving high resolution in binary reactions involving an outgoing high energy neutron is solved by detecting the γ-ray decay of populated excited states in an array of escape suppressed HPGe detectors in coincidence with fast neutrons. The selectivity of the arrangement is of the order of 1 in 1000 and is demonstrated by L=0 two proton stripping using 27Al, 59Co, 160Gd(3He,nγ) reactions at 22.5 MeV.
