This project, funded by DTRA, proposes to develop novel boron containing organic single crystal detectors for neutron detection as an alternative for 3He based detectors. The goal of the proposed effort is to investigate novel organic scintillators that are capable of efficient thermal and fast neutron detection, and provide effective neutrongamma discrimination based on pulse shape as well as pulse height analysis. The organic compounds we plan to investigate are derivatives of the azaborines.
