The measurement of thermal neutrons generated by cosmic ray extensive air showers (EAS) on the Earth’s surface provides a new method for studying the composition and energy spectrum of cosmic rays at the so-called "knee" region. The electron-neutron detector (EN-detector) utilizing a new type scintillator based on a compound alloy of ZnS(Ag) and B2O3 with natural boron is developed. At present 2 clusters (each consists of 16 detectors) are kept at the laboratory in Hebei Normal University (HNU). The performance test of the EN-detector mainly focuses on role of the cone, and the detector noise level.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
