Neutron detection with cryogenics and semiconductors

Authors


Abstract

The common methods of neutron detection are reviewed with special attention paid to the application of cryogenics and semiconductors to the problem. The authors' work with LiF- and boron-based cryogenic instruments is described as well as the use of CdTe and HgI2 for direct detection of neutrons. (© 2005 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
