06-17 – Non-Streaming Perforated Semiconductor Neutron Detector and Dosimeter and Method of Making the Same

Current neutron detectors are designed around the basis of the repeated lattice structure of substrate material with rods or channels of neutron reactive material imbedded within. Neutrons interacting in the rods and channels cause the neutron reactive material to emit energetic radiation emissions, which then interact in the adjacent semiconductor regions, resulting in the detection of a neutron. The inherent problem with the current design is that the detector contains multiple pathways through which neutrons may stream without encountering any neutron sensitive material, which results in an angular dependence to detection and relatively low efficiency.
