Technical Note /

The importance of the parameter, which accounts for the deviations from the ideal behavior of the epithermal component of the neutron spectrum in nuclear reactors, is discussed. From the mathematical expression of the subcadmium to epicadmium flux ratio, a new method for fast approximate measurement of is proposed. The data corresponding to the evaluation of several flux monitors and the experimental results of the application of the method are presented.
