[Fast-Neutrons] Fiber scintillators for fast neutron imaging

Initially we bought our 20 cm x 20 cm fiber screen (0.5mm fibers, 3cm thick) from Saint-Gobain.
Later on, a similar screen was purchased from Crytur. It had less defects and much faster delivery time.

I believe that a larger screen with 250um fibers can be made. One has to discuss this with the relevant companies.

Ilan, Thank you for bringing your nice paper<https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0168900211005390> to our attention. I was particularly interested in two points you made about fast neutron scintillators:
1) With a large aperture lens (f/0.95) the small depth of field gives better resolution than might be expected from thick (10mm) slab scintillators because you focus on the surface.
2) Already available 250 micron fibre scintillators can be made quite thick because the fibre coating prevents cross-talk between fibres. If only such scintillators could be made with areas big enough to cover Michael's 200 micron pixel detector. That's already quite good resolution for hot neutrons.

Thanks, Alan

Hello all,

We used in the past a steel mask with line pairs which was used to quantify the CTF of our system (see description in the attached paper).
Unfortunately this mask was lost.
Our colleague from PTB produced a similar mask made of heavy met.
