Joyce, M. J. and Aspinall, M. D. and Cave, F. D. and Georgopoulos, K. and Jarrah, Z. (2010) The Design, Build and Test of a Digital Analyzer for Mixed Radiation Fields. IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 57 (5). pp. 2625-2630. ISSN 0018-9499Full text not available from this repository.
The design, build and test of a digital analyzer for mixed radiation fields is described. This instrument has been developed to provide portable, real-time discrimination of hard mixed fields comprising both neutrons and γ rays with energies typically above 0.5 MeV. The instrument in its standard form comprises a sensor head and a system unit, and affords the flexibility to provide processed data in the form of the traditional scatter-plot representation separating neutron and γ -ray components, or the full, sampled pulse data itself. The instrument has been tested with an americium-beryllium source in three different shielding arrangements to replicate the case in which there are only neutrons, only γ rays and where both neutrons and γ -rays are present. The instrument is observed to return consistent results.
