Performance of a prototype large area neutron detector based on 6LiF:ZnS(Ag) with MPPC read-out

Abstract:

Systems based on 6LiF:ZnS(Ag) are good alternatives to 3He neutron detectors. Whilst the neutron absorption is well characterized in 6LiF:ZnS(Ag) layers, the detector efficiency is more likely to depend upon the light collection efficiency and light attenuation or uniformity across the active area - which can be large. We developed a segmented large area system (2 × 0.3 × 0.12) m comprising 16 neutron sensitive strips (1.6 m long) with embedded wavelength shifting fibers read out by MPPCs. Th...
