A neutron spectrometer based on NE230 deuterated liquid scintillator was developed to measure neutron energy spectra in water. Neutron energy spectra were obtained from measurements of pulse height spectra using the Bayesian unfolding code MAXED. Results from measurements made along the beam-axis compare well with Monte Carlo calculations using MCNPX.
