TN15 thermal neutron detector

Robust, cost-effective, self-contained, room temperature neutron detection without Helium3

Thermal neutron detector without Helium3

Room temperature thermal neutron detector

The TN15 high sensitivity thermal neutron detector utilizes a state-of-the-art silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) and offers world-leading specification in a compact form. The TN15 surpasses the performance of a 100mm long 13mmHe tube at 4 atmospheres and does not need cooling but operates at room temperature.

This highly compact device is completely self-contained, with a built-in preamplifier, shaping amplifier, pulse discrimination, and HV supply. The digitized neutron data is sent to a PC via the mini-USB which also powers the unit, so no external power supply is required; making the TN15 portable and creates a host of new ways to use and deploy neutron detectors.

Gamma spectroscopy software included

The TN15 uses KSpect, Kromek’s entry-level Windows-based gamma spectroscopy software which will display neutron counts. KSpect can be upgraded to Kromek’s top-of-the-range MultiSpect Analysis gamma spectroscopy software, an application that allows connection of multiple detectors to a PC, and has the ability to display multiple spectra; both live and saved, from previous measurements.
