Digital front-end electronics for the neutron detector NEDA
This paper presents the design of the NEDA (Neutron Detector Array) electronics, a first attempt to involve the use of digital electronics in large neutron detector arrays. Starting from the front-end modules attached to ...
Digital pulse-timing technique for the neutron detector array NEDA
(Elsevier Science BV, 2015)
A new digital pulse-timing algorithm, to be used with the future neutron detector array NEDA, has been developed and tested. The time resolution of four 5 in diameter photomultiplier tubes (XP4512, R4144, R11833-100, and ...
The new neutron multiplicity filter NEDA and its first physics compaign with AGATA
(Jagiellonian Univ Press, 2019)
A new neutron multiplicity filter NEDA, after a decade of design, R&D and construction, was employed in its first physics campaign with the AGATA spectrometer. Properties and performance of the array are discussed.
Neutron detection and gamma-ray suppression using artificial neural networks with the liquid scintillators BC-501A and BC-537
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2018)
In this work we present a comparison between the two liquid scintillators BC-501A and BC-537 in terms of their performance regarding the pulse-shape discrimination between neutrons and gamma rays. Special emphasis is put ...
NEDA-NEutron detector array
(Elsevier Science BV, 2019)
The NEutron Detector Array, NEDA, will form the next generation neutron detection system that has been designed to be operated in conjunction with gamma-ray arrays, such as the tracking-array AGATA, to aid nuclear spectroscopy ...
Monte Carlo simulation of a single detector unit for the neutron detector array NEDA
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2012)
A study of the dimensions and performance of a single detector of the future neutron detector array NEDA was performed by means of Monte Carlo simulations, using GEANT4. Two different liquid scintillators were evaluated: ...
Design and test of a high-speed flash ADC mezzanine card for high-resolution and timing performance in nuclear structure experiments [Conference Paper]
This board will be part of the upgrade for the new electronics for the EXOGAM2 (HP-Ge detector array) and NEDA (BC501A-based neutron detector array), therefore it was necessary to deal with the problem of providing a ...
A new front-end high-resolution sampling board for the new-generation electronics of EXOGAM2 and NEDA detectors
The present paper aims to present the final design and results of the FADC Mezzanine for EXOGAM and NEDA detectors, focusing on the resolution performance. Finally, the conclusion shows how a common digitizing device has ...
A digital front-end electronics for the neutron detector NEDA
This paper presents the design of the NEDA frontend electronics, a first attempt to involve the use of digital electronics in large neutron detector arrays. Among the electronic modules taking part, we emphasize on the ...
Test of digital neutron-gamma discrimination with four different photomultiplier tubes for the NEutron Detector Array (NEDA)
(Elsevier Science BV, 2014)
A comparative study of the neutron-gamma discrimination performance of a liquid scintillator detector BC501A coupled to four different 5 in photomultiplier tubes (ET9390kb, R11833-100, XP4512 and R4144) was carried out ...
