    Semiconductor neutron detectors R. Mendicino Figure 1: The two different approaches to solid state neutron detectors: reactive material detector and thin film converter deposition on semiconductor sensor. can be obtained by using micro-machining technologies to obtain three dimensional geometries. The use of a high sensitivity solid-state optical detector coupled to scintillation materials, loaded with a neutron absorber such as 6 Li can fulfill these design constraints. We are developing a neutron detector with low-cost CMOS solid-state photomultiplier and with emerging, interesting scintillation material like Cs 2 LiYCl 6:Ce (CLYC).

    Solid-state detector, also called Semiconductor Radiation Detector, radiation detector in which a semiconductor material such as a silicon or germanium crystal constitutes the detecting medium. One such device consists of a p-n junction across which a pulse of current develops when a particle of ionizing radiation traverses it. In a different device, the absorption of ionizing radiation.

    solid state silicon detectors, coupled with neutron converter layers containing 6 Li, have been proved to represent a viable solution for several applications as present in literatu re [2] - [8]. The ability of solid state nuclear track detectors (SSNTD) to register local damages of individual radi-ation events and their insensitivity to visible light, b and g radiations are some of the characteristics that makes these detectors attractive for neutron radiogra-phy (NR) .

For example, in solid-state detectors, the absorption of a photon results in the promotion of a charge carrier to the conduction band and a resultant current in an electrical circuit. At a particular wavelength, this current is found to be proportional to the optical flux over a large dynamic range [25, 34].

Solid-state detectors: A new approach to thermal neutron detection Kansas State University researchers Steven Bellinger (from left), Douglas McGregor, and Tim Sobering have worked to build a solid-state radiation detector capable of being mass produced.

The ionization caused by the α-particle can then be measured. This reaction is used in the BF 3 gas-filled proportional tube. Boron-lined proportional counters and boron-loaded scintillators are other examples of neutron. In contrast, in scintillator detectors since detection is developed in a solid, any thickness can be obtained.

The thinner the thickness of the solid the more efficient the results obtained become. Usually the absorber is 6 Li and the substrate, which detects the.

Neutron detection is the effective detection of neutrons entering a well-positioned are two key aspects to effective neutron detection: hardware and software. Detection hardware refers to the kind of neutron detector used (the most common today is the scintillation detector) and to the electronics used in the detection r, the hardware setup also defines key.

Until recently, thermal neutron detection has required physically large devices to provide sufficient. Solid-state thermal neutron detectors are desired to replace 3 He tube based technology for the detection of special nuclear materials.

3 He tubes have some issues with stability, sensitivity to microphonics and very recently, a shortage of 3 He. There are numerous solid-state approaches being investigated that utilize various architectures and material by: 5.

Solid State Nuclear Track Detection: Principles, Methods and Applications is the second book written by the authors after Nuclear Tracks in Solids: Principles and Applications. The book is meant as an introduction to the subject solid state of nuclear track detection.However, solid state semiconductor thermal neutron detectors are still highly desirable because when compared with gas-filled detectors, they have the potential to be more compact, operate at lower voltages, and be more robust against vibration induced noise.The neutron detector is based on a scintillators coupled to the solid-state photo multipliers (SSPM).

In this work, we investigated the use Cs 2 LiLaBr 6 (CLLB), an emerging scintillation material.
