The Bayes' theorem of conditional probabilities is shown as an alternative to unfold the neutron flux energy distribution of experimental nuclear reactors, in particular to the RECH-1 reactor at CCHEN, from neutron activation measurements. This method has been tested assuming no knowledge of the neutron flux energy distribution. Experimental measurements for natCd foil, γ-spectroscopy and the respective saturation activity values are presented.
