    Keywords : neutron detection; neutron; 10B; boron-10; nuclear physics; boron; neutron detector; scintillator; boron carbide; B4C; nuclear fuel; repository; SKB; Physics and Astronomy; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The nuclear reaction 10B(n,alpha)7Li* was utilised to develop a neutron detection system. This system has the purpose of being used to detect the thermal neutron radiation emitted by spent nuclear fuel, before it is transported to a final repository. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Characteristics of B4C Coated Scintillators

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kärnfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Anton Bodahl; [2016]
    Keywords : B4C; Scintillators; Coincidence Measurements; LIBAF; Homogenity Measurements; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The characteristics of Boron Carbide (B4C) coated polyvinyltoluene scintillators with a sputtered B4C coating ranging between 200 and 1000 nm have been studied using a photomultiplier - Lanthanum Bromide detector setup with a PuBe neutron source. The raw data from the detectors was analysed by imposing a detector coincidence condition. READ MORE
