Experimental-Determination of Cross-Talk between Neutron Detectors
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1992

Neutron cross-talk measurements have been performed with 14.1 MeV neutrons for organic scintillator detectors with n-gamma discrimination capability. The probability for cross-talk between two 156 mm thick neutron detectors with a hexagonal cross section (effective diameter 167 mm) placed 0.33 m apart was found to be (2.5+/-1.1) 10(-4). A similar measurement between two 100 mm thick, cylindrically shaped detectors with 50 mm diameter and at 75 mm distance from each other yielded a cross-talk probability of (2.5+/-0.4) 10(-3). The measured cross-talk probabilities are in agreement with values from a Monte Carlo calculation.
