Investigation of aerogel, saturated foam, and foil for thermal neutron detection


A recent shortage in <sup>3</sup>He for neutron detection has caused an increase in research efforts for a viable replacement. Three materials, borosilicate aerogel, <sup>6</sup>LiF saturated foam, and natural lithium foil, have been investigated as neutron detection materials. The materials of focus are designed in such a way that allow both reaction… (More)
