The Detector for Advanced Neutron Capture Experiments (DANCE) at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is designed as a high efficiency, highly segmented 4π BaF2 detector for calorimetrically detecting gamma rays following a neutron capture. Coupled with the neutron spallation source at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE), DANCE measurements on unstable isotopes in the energy range between 10 meV and 500 keV will provide many of the missing key reactions that are needed to understand the nucleosynthesis of the heavy elements and will also provide vital information for the design of future reactor concepts.
