First, current neutron capture study in the field of nuclear engineering is reviewed. A LaBr3 spectrometer is expected to be a powerful tool for determining neutron capture cross sections. In order to design a next generation spectrometer, performances of a LaBr3 detector to high energy gamma rays were studied, and the performance of 4pai type LaBr3 spectrometer were simulated. These results will be presented.
