At the n_TOF experiment at CERN a dedicated detector, which consists of an array of 9 sCVD diamond detectors, has been developed for (n,a) cross-section measurements. The detector has been characterized and a first cross-section measurement has been performed for the 59Ni(n,a)56Fe reaction in 2012. The characteristics of the detector, its performance during the cross-section measurement and preliminary results of the experiment will be presented. CIVIDEC Instrumentation GmbH, Vienna, Austria, sponsored this work.
