Title: Neutron detection using Poisson distribution comparison independent of count rate based on correlation signals

Embodiments are directed to comparison-based methods of conditionally assessing the excess in correlation of an unknown neutron count measurement compared to the correlation present in a data defined as background, and to providing a technical definition of excess correlation intended to properly handle the measured excess correlation. The degree of correlation between an unknown source and background can be used to prevent masking of neutron count data for the source by background radiation.
