Title: Pulse Mode Calibration of the Micro Pocket Fission Detector

Abstract

The Micro-Pocket Fission Detector (MPFD) is a neutron sensor currently under development in the High Temperature Test Laboratory (HTTL) for use as a supporting instrument during material testing experiments performed at TREAT. The detector has the capability to observe the real-time neutron population while surviving the harsh radiation, and temperature conditions, which sets it apart from most neutron sensitive devices. The next step in the instrument development process is to define a method of calibrating pulse-mode operations. This procedure will allow the detector to be calibrated to allow for absolute measurements of localized neutron population in real time.
