Abstract
A Neutron detection device is an indispensable tool for power, medical, and defense applications. Proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in today`s world. Low cost, low power, high performance, rugged and portable neutron detection devices are highly desirable for these applications. Agiltron proposes an unprecedented fabrication and integration approach to make these solid-state neutron detectors commercially available at low cost for large-scale deployment. The success of this project will lead to the large-scale manufacture of these unmatched next generation neutron detectors.
