Title: One-Dimensional Nanostructures for Neutron Detection

This report consists of four parts in addition to a publication/presentation list. Part I is on electronic structure simulations on boron nitride (BN) and BCxN nanotubes using density function theory (DFT), Part II is on fabrication and characterization of nanowire sensors, Part III is on irradiation response of BN nanotubes using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, and Part IV is on the in-situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) study of irradiation response of BN nanotubes.
