Title: A New Method of Neutron Detecton for UCN Lifetime Measrements

A number of inconsistant neutron lifetime measurements have been reported. The disagreement among the various measurements made with material neutron traps with ultra-cold neutrons (UCN) suggests unaccounted for systematic errors in these measurements. One potential source of error is due to the long emptying times which may be time dependent due to the UCN phase space evolution in the trap. We present a way to reduce this effect.
