This article is about one specific instrument. For generic information about the spectroscopic method, see Time of flight. For time-of-flight instruments in neutron scattering, see Neutron time-of-flight scattering.

The Neutron Time Of Flight (n-TOF) facility is a neutron spectrometer at CERN. It consists of a pulsed source, a flight path of 200 m length, and a detector systems. Neutron energies are deduced from the time of flight between source and detector; hence the name of the facility.
