Paper Abstract

A relatively small and inexpensive neutron diagnostic probe system has been developed that can identify and image most elements having a larger atomic number than boron. It has the potential to satisfy van-mobile and fixed-portal requirements for nondestructive detection of contraband drugs, explosives, and nuclear and chemical warfare weapon materials, and for treaty verification of sealed munitions and remediation of radioactive waste.
