Abstract:

THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF ADVANCED FAST-NEUTRON SENSORS BASED ON THE CONVERTER/METAL-OXIDE-SILICON-CAPACITOR (MOSC) APPROACH IS PROPOSED. THE SENSORS PROMISE IMPROVED TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE AND COST-EFFECTIVENESS AS COMPONENTS OF THE NEUTRAL PARTICLE BEAM (NPB) MASS DISCRIMINATION SYSTEM BEING DEVELOPED BY SDIO. THE GOAL OF THE OVERALL PROJECT IS TO CONSTRUCT AND EXPERIMENTALLY EVALUATE PROTOTYPE CONVERTER-MOSC SENSORS FOR THIS ROLE, MAKING THEM AVAILABLE FOR PHASE III REPLICATION AND FOR SYSTEM DEPLOYMENT. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL CONTRIBUTE BY THE DEVELOPMENT OF A VALIDATED SENSOR PERFORMANCE SIMULATION AND DESIGN BASE, BY DEFINITION OF THE EXISTING OR EXTRAPOLABLE FABRICATION TECHNOLOGY REQUIRED FOR PROTOTYPE SENSOR CONSTRUCTION, AND BY COST ANALYSIS OF PHASE II FABRICATION TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT AND OF PHASE III REPLICATION.
