The neutron detector is based on 6 LiF:ZnS(Ag) (2) scintillation material. The development required optimization of the detector design by simulating the nuclear interactions, light yield for different … 6 LiF:ZnS:Binder mixture ratios and the … 6 Li in the scintillator and the production of an Alpha and a
