This paper proposes a neutron source identification method based on the spectral analysis of neutron pulse height distributions obtained with liquid scintillation detectors. The fact that shielded and unshielded neutron sources have clearly defined spectral components with specific locations and intensities offers the possibility of identifying the sources based on spectral features alone, without having to unfold the energy spectra. Analysis of simulated and experimental data confirms that this new identification method is promising, and that good resolution power can be achieved.
