Deuterated scintillators (NE230) can provide, without time-of-flight, usable neutron energy spectra for neutrons E n⩾1 MeV. The authors have assembled and calibrated several of these detectors and used them in experiments searching for d+d fusion-neutron emission (En, 2.5 MeV) in Pd+D 2O electrolysis and Ti+D2 adsorption at LN temperatures. The detectors yielded direct fusion-neutron spectra and set limits in the Pd+D and Ti+D experiments of <7×10-24 fusion n/s/dd pair and <3×10-24 fusion n/s/dd pair respectively. In addition, these detectors have been used for in-beam accelerator experiments requiring coincidence between fast neutrons and scattered ions
