Title: Apparatus for use in a directional-neutron detector, directional-neutron detectors and methods of use thereof

Abstract

An apparatus for used in a directional-neutron detector is disclosed. The apparatus comprises a structure having a plurality of parallel active channels separated by inactive regions. The plurality of active channels is filled with scintillating material. The scintillating material is configured to emit light in response to neutron scattering. The scintillating material may be neutron-gamma discriminating. The scintillating material may be sealed in the plurality of active channels. The seal is disposed on respective ends of the plurality of active channels. Directional-neutron detectors are also disclosed having the structure.
