Predicted Performance of Neutron Spectrometers Using Scintillating Fibers

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

One class of neutron spectrometers is devices that provide a measure of the neutron spectrum by using moderating and absorbing materials together with thermal-neutron detectors. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has developed scintillating fibers that are sensitive to thermal neutrons. Because these fibers are thin, they present an enabling technology for several applications, including highly efficient neutron spectroscopy. The underlying concept is to arrange the fibers in an array of layers separated by materials whose characteristics have been chosen to optimize the instrument function for the application. Monte Carlo experiments have been performed to characterize the conceptual design and to determine ... continued below
