Abstract:

An experimental program was conducted to improve the neutron energy response of the neutron scintillation detector of the ANPDR-58 XN-1 Neutron Survey Meter. The final neutron detector developed very closely approximates the mremhr per unit neutron flux for neutron energies from 0.025 ev to 15 Mev as specified in NBS Handbook 63. In addition, the final detector has a much higher over-all sensitivity.
