Abstract

A drop-in 3He-tube replacement technology for thermal neutron detection does not exist today. It is critical for homeland security and nuclear safeguards applications. In this program, Triton Systems proposes to develop a light-weight, large-area, high efficiency portable neutron detector for passive interrogation using an innovative gas detector structure. The resulting 3He-free thermal neutron detector is anticipated to have the following characteristics: detection efficiency of >50%, gamma ray rejection ratio of 10-7, large effective area of 625cm2, light-weight and be available at a fraction of the current 3He tube cost.
