The time-dependent close-coupling method is used to calculate neutron-impact single and double ionization cross sections of the He atom. We also present the ratio of double to single ionization for He as a guide to experimental checks of theory at low energies and experimental confirmation of the rapid rise of the ratio at high energies unique to neutron-impact ionization of atoms.
