MSND® Tile

IMG_20150421_153702 (2)

The MSND® technology implements Li6 conversion to yield a thermal neutron detection efficiency of 30%. Optimum HDPE moderator for Cf252 neutron source at 1-m is 3-4 cm in front and 3-6 cm behind the MSND® sensor.

Solid-State Neutron Detection Applications:

Neutron detector applications include those for homeland security (e.g., border screening), fundamental research (e.g., neutron scattering beamlines), and industrial monitoring (e.g., personnel monitoring, water content in soil). Solid-state neutron detectors provide an alternative to the 3He-based detectors, maintaining a high thermal-neutron detection efficiency, at a fraction of the volume, mass, voltage, and power required from gas or liquid detectors. Recommend AC coupling to electronic readout circuit.
