The angle-correlated energy differential cross-section for 9Be(n,2n) reaction has been measured with the coincidence detection technique and a pencil-beam DT neutron source of FNS, JAEA. Neutron energy spectra of two emitted neutrons were separately obtained as azimuthal- and axial-angle differential value, which is called TDX. From the measured TDX, double-angle differential cross sections, ADDX, angular differential cross section, ADX, and total cross section, TOX, were deduced. In the TDX, a characteristic energy spectrum for beryllium was seen. The azimuthal ADDX unexpectedly showed a 180 deg. symmetrical spectrum, not a flat one. From the result of TOX, JENDL-3.3 and ENDF/B-VI showed a little underestimation by around 10%.
