The neutron emission spectrum from neutral beam-heated plasmas of the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) is investigated based on first-principles simulations of the fast deuteron energy distribution. Parametrized plasma profiles are used to determine the beam deposition and fast deuteron distribution function using the NUBEAM code. The deuteron distribution is also interpreted with the help of empirical models and the components in the neutron energy spectrum are computed for different viewing lines using a Monte Carlo method. The resulting observational possibilities are discussed for the case of a time-of-flight neutron emission spectrometer optimized for EAST.
