In this work we present all the results obtained from 2009 to 2013 regarding the measurement of the neutron spectra coming from new forms of nuclear reactions. In particular, we referred the measurements of such spectra to the neutrons produced in condition of Deformed Space-Time (DST) which are a consequence of the Lorentz violation: when the breakdown of the Local Lorentz Invariance (LLI) occurs. The spectra obtained have completely new unique characteristics and differ from normal known neutron sources. To make a comparison, we reported both spectra is the photographic images of the neutrons emitted by three ‘classic sources:’ thermal neutrons from a model TRIGA nuclear reactor, fast neutrons from a nuclear reactor, uranium enriched to 94% and neutrons from an Am-Be source. In the light of the results obtained we also have concluded that in presence of DST neutron spectra, and thus in general with new forms of neutrons from nuclear reactions, it is not possible to use detection methods such as indium activation or fission of Uranium. Finally, in this work we have again shown the problem of the ‘directionality’ of the DST neutron emissions.
