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 ...
Pulse pile-up identification and reconstruction for liquid scintillator based neutron detectors
(Elsevier Science BV, 2018)
The issue of pulse pile-up is frequently encountered in nuclear experiments involving high counting rates, which will distort the pulse shapes and the energy spectra. A digital method of off-line processing of pile-up ...
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: ...
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 ...
