. Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM)-based detectors using a layer of 10 B as a neutron converter is becoming popular for thermal neutron detection. A common strategy to simulate this kind of detector is based on two frameworks: Geant4 and Garfield++. The first one provides the simulation of the nuclear interaction between neutrons and the 10 B layer, while the second allows the simulation of the interaction of the reaction products with the detector gas leading to the ionization and excitation of the…

Performance and optimization of a GEM-based neutron detector using a parameterized fast simulator

Neutrons can be detected indirectly through a nuclear reaction where the products are ionizing radiation. Due to the shortage of 3He, several studies are searching for alternatives, where the Gas
