Paper Abstract

We report on progress in different domains of n-detection: (1) High gain image intensifiers coupled to n-scintillators enable small size n-monitors with high spatial resolution. (2) Standard CCD cameras combined with special frame grabbers provide low cost n-image processing. (3) Progress in diode technology allows direct light detection from n-scintillators with the aim of low effort and very thin n-detectors. (4) New foils with X-ray photography combined with n-converters can be used for efficient large area position-sensitive detectors. The stored information is read out by laser-stimulated emission of light.
