Yohei Abe, Masashi Takada, Tomoya Nunomiya, Kei Aoyama, Takashi Nakamura, Tetsuro Matsumoto, Akihiko Masuda,

Neutron response functions of a silicon sensor, which is applied to a new real-time personal albedo neutron dosemeter, have been simulated for low energy neutrons from 0.01 eV to 10 keV using the Monte Carlo technique. The angular neutron response functions were obtained by multiplying simulated neutron energy spectra crossing the neutron ... Read more >>

Masashi Takada, Tomoya Nunomiya, Akihiko Masuda, Tetsuro Matsumoto, Hiroki Tanaka, Satoshi Nakamura, Satoru Endo, Masaru Nakamura, Kei Aoyama, Osamu Ueda, Masataka Narita, Takashi Nakamura,

We have developed a new real-time neutron detector, which is able to measure a direct neutron beam of boron neutron capture therapy. The detector consists of both a 40-μm-thick pn diode and around 0.09-μm-thick LiF neutron converter. Experimental results indicate that this neutron detector can measure neutron flux up to ...
