Detector integration of severe accident management instrumentation for robotic applications at nuclear reactor facilities
In the aftermath of a nuclear accident, robots can be used to monitor and assess radiological contamination, preventing harmful exposure to plant personnel. In this work, several detectors were evaluated to be supplemented ...
Theoretical performance analysis of a novel hemispherical tissue equivalent proportional counter for neutron monitoring and dosimetry
Neutron dosimetry in reactor fields is currently conducted using thermal neutron flux monitors. It has been demonstrated that Tissue Equivalent Proportional Counters (TEPCs) have the potential to improve the accuracy of ...
A new approach to neutron spectrometry with multi-element scintillators
The combined effects of the nuclear industrial renaissance, the events of 9/11, and the Fukushima disaster have had a significant impact on the research and development of radiation detection instrumentation. Notably, there ...
Development of neutron monitor for fusion systems
Currently, the detection of neutrons employs sensors with a high thermal neutron response embedded in a thermalizing medium. However, this approach does not provide much information on neutron energy and, therefore, is ...
