The differential cross section of neutron scattering on deuterium was investigated in the energy range from 400 keV to 2.5 MeV using the recoil detection method, irradiating with monoenergetic neutrons a proportional counter filled with deuterated gases. Comparing simulations of the transport of neutrons and recoil nuclei in the detector to the experimental pulse-height distribution, it was possible to establish a procedure for the determination of the coefficients of the Legendre expansion of the n-d angular distribution.
