A thermal-neutron detector with a phoswich system of LiCaAlF6 and BGO crystal scintillators onboard PoGOLite

Abstract

To measure the flux of atmospheric neutrons and study the neutron contribution to the background of the main detector of the PoGOLite (Polarized Gamma-ray Observer) balloon-borne experiment, a thermal-neutron detector with a phoswich system of LiCaAlF6 (Eu) and BGO crystal scintillators is developed. The performance to separate thermal-neutron events from… (More)
