Paper Abstract

An improved scintillator fiber optic long counter for neutron detection, which uses 6Li- loaded, Tb3+-doped glass scintillator fibers as the detection element has been fabricated and tested. By determining the position of an absorbed neutron along the fiber axis, the system is capable of performing low resolution neutron spectroscopy based on thermalization depth, while retaining the flat efficiency of the conventional long counter. The system offers improved gamma ray/neutron discrimination capability and more efficient signal processing electronics.
