Paper Abstract

A high detectivity CCD camera has successfully been used to detect the faint light of a neutron scintillator. We present our first prototype of such a neutron detector with an active area of up to 28*28 cm2 and we show several high-resolution radiographs taken with it. After some further improvements, this detector will be sensitive enough to detect a few single neutrons on an area as large as 0.5*0.5 m2, thus making it feasible for small-angle scattering with sufficient size and very high resolution.
