Improved neutron detection using zinc sulfide with boron

Abstract:

Phosphor screens designed to detect neutrons by producing light are used in many applications to detect thermal neutrons including the SoLid antineutrino detection experiment. These screens are formed by binding powders of zinc sulfide and lithium-6 fluoride with an epoxy. Due to poor transparency, these screens have limited neutron detection efficiency. The current study proposes an alternate material with the potential for higher neutron detection efficiency based on sintering zinc sulfi...
