In the present experiments the neutron energy spectrum has been analyzed from cloud-chamber photographs of recoil protons in the direction of the deuteron beam. A target of Li2(6)SO4, 375 µg per cm^2 (about 150 kev at the bombarding energy used) was irradiated with 595-kev deuterons from the Rice Institute Van de Graaf generator. The low bombarding energy was chosen to minimize the neutrons from deuteron bombardment of carbon contamination on the target and on the tube wall in the analyzing magnet.
