Title: Development of a multiwire proportional chamber imaging system for neutron radiography

Abstract

A multiwire proportional chamber was developed for thermal, epithermal, and fast neutron radiographic imaging. It employs electromagnetic delay lines for coordinate readout and solid layer neutron-tocharged particle converters. Thermal neutron detection efficiencies of nearly 4% and spatial resolutions of 2 mm were achieved. Model calculations were in good agreement with experiment and indicate that substantial improvements in both the efficiency and resolution are possible.
