More and more interests have been paid to the differential and double-differential neutron emission cross sections (DX and DDX) at above 20 MeV region in recent years. At the China Institute of Atomic Energy (CIAE), a program to measure the DX and DDX between 20 and 30 MeV neutron energy region has been carried out. The d-T reaction neutron source was used to produce the 20 - 30 MeV neutrons with a tritium gas target at the HI-13 tandem accelerator at CIAE. The time-of-flight(TOF) technique was used to measure the neutron energy from about 1 MeV to 30 MeV with 3 BC501A liquid scintillators (with a size of ??180 ¡¿100 mm). A preliminary measurement has been carried out for 9Be at 22 MeV. The measured data were analyzed by detailed Monte-Carlo simulation to perform the multiple scattering, flux attenuation and finite geometry corrections. The experimental details, the data analysis, the progress, the results and the future plan will be presented in this report.
