Paper Abstract

Cadmium telluride (CdTe) detector has been used to detect thermal neutrons; along with gadolinium (Gd) used as a neutron converter. Simulation results show that the appropriate thickness of Gd film for CdTe detector is 25 μm. The Gd/CdTe detector shows the 80 keV, 89 keV and 182 keV gamma ray emission peaks from 155Gd(n, γ)156Gd and 157Gd(n, γ)158Gd reactions.
