Neutron-sensitive scintillating glass fiber sensors provide several advantages over neutron-sensitive gas-tubes for plutonium detection and surveillance. Large area detectors and higher effective neutron capture density provide significant improvements in sensitivity versus cost. The glass sensors offer a wide dynamic counting range, fast response time, no transport hazard, greater operator safety and lower micro-phonic susceptibility relative to conventional 3He and 10BF3 sensors. We report on… Expand
