We present the development of the miniTimeCube (mTC), a novel compact neutrino detector. The mTC is a multipurpose detector, aiming to detect not only neutrinos but also fast/thermal neutrons. Potential applications include the counterproliferation of nuclear materials and the investigation of antineutrino short-baseline effects. The mTC is a plastic 0.2% (10)B-doped scintillator (13 cm)(3) cube surrounded by 24 Micro-Channel Plate (MCP) photon detectors, each with an 8 × 8 anode totaling 1536… 

miniTimeCube as a neutron scatter camera

We present Monte Carlo (MC) simulation results from a study of a compact plastic-scintillator detector suitable for imaging fast neutrons in the 1 – 10 MeV energy range: the miniTimeCube (mTC).

iDREAM: industrial Detector of REactor Antineutrinos for Monitoring at Kalinin nuclear power plant

The paper is devoted to the description of the iDREAM detector and its systems. iDREAM is a prototype detector designed to demonstrate the feasibility of antineutrino detectors for remote reactor

Antineutrino monitoring of spent nuclear fuel

Military and civilian applications of nuclear energy have left a significant amount of spent nuclear fuel over the past 70 years. Currently, in many countries world wide, the use of nuclear energy is

Neutron/Gamma Pulse Shape Discrimination in Plastics Scintillators: From Development to Commercialization

Radiation detection requires instruments which can detect nuclear radiation, having at the same time the ability to discriminate among different types of nuclear particles. For many decades, neutron

Monte Carlo Simulation of a Segmented Detector for Low-Energy Electron Antineutrinos

Detection of low-energy electron antineutrinos is of importance for several purposes, such as ex-vessel reactor monitoring, neutrino oscillation studies, etc. The inverse beta decay (IBD) is the

Design and calibration of an optically segmented single volume scatter camera for neutron imaging

The Optically Segmented Single Volume Scatter Camera (OS-SVSC) aims to image neutron sources for non-proliferation applications using the kinematic reconstruction of elastic double-scatter events.
