Real-Time Signal Processing for Mitigating SiPM Dark Noise Effects in a Scintillating Neutron Detector

July 19, 2021
Author(s)
Kevin N. Pritchard, Jean Philippe Chabot, R. Robucci, F. S. Choa, A. Osovizky, Jeffrey B. Ziegler, Louis E. Binkley, Peter Tsai, Nancy Hadad, M. Jackson, C. Hurlbut, George M. Baltic, Charles Majkrzak, Nicholas C. Maliszewskyj
A 6 LiF:ZnS(Ag) based cold neutron detector with wavelength shifting (WLS) fibers and SiPM photodetector was developed at the NIST Center for Neutron Research. For neutron scattering applications at the NCNR, detector false positives severely diminish the

Measuring Deadtime and Double-Counts in a Non-Paralyzable Scintillating Neutron Detector using Arrival Time Statistics

Kevin N. Pritchard, A. Osovizky, Jeffrey B. Ziegler, Louis E. Binkley, Peter NMN Tsai, Nancy Hadad, M. Jackson, C. Hurlbut, George M. Baltic, Charles Majkrzak, Nicholas C. Maliszewskyj
We used data analysis and pattern recognition techniques to optimize the neutron sensitivity and selectivity of an ultrathin 6 LiF:ZnS(Ag) scintillator based neutron detector paired with a Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM). We recorded waveforms from the

A. Osovizky, Kevin N. Pritchard, Jeffrey B. Ziegler, Louis E. Binkley, Y. Yehuda-Zada, Peter NMN Tsai, Alan Keith Thompson, P. Yvonne Barnes, Kerry Siebein, Nancy Hadad, M. Jackson, C. Hurlbut, R. Ibberson, George M. Baltic, Charles Majkrzak, Nicholas C. Maliszewskyj
We report the optimization of a ^6^LiF:ZnS(Ag) scintillator mixture for an ultrathin (2nm), highly efficient cold neutron dector. Preliminary results with early protypes demonstrate excellent for 3.62 meV (4.75 Angstrom wavelenght) neutrons but mediocre
