ABSTRACT
Several new methods for the digital discrimination of neutrons and gamma-rays in a mixed radiation field are presented. The methods introduced discriminate neutrons and gamma rays successfully in the digital domain. They are mathematically simple and exploit samples during the life time of the pulse, hence appropriate for field measurements. All these methods are applied to a set of mixed neutron and photon signals from a stilbene scintillator and their discrimination qualities are compared. No MeSH data available.

Mentions: In Eq. 5, a sample gamma-ray and a sample neutron are picked and used to build the weights. These samples need to be patterns representing the types of pulses contained in the whole data set. Therefore, more than one sample should be used for each pulse type to obtain better results. If we use number of pulses () from each radiation type to build the sample pulses required, then7\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{wasysym} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{upgreek} \setlength{\oddsidemargin}{-69pt} \begin{document}$$\begin{aligned} g(i)&= \frac{\sum _{j=1}^kg_j(i)}{k}\nonumber \\ n(i)&= \frac{\sum _{j=1}^kn_j(i)}{k} \end{aligned}$$\end{document}g(i)=∑j=1kgj(i)kn(i)=∑j=1knj(i)kOnce every point of the two sample pulses are built using the Eq. 7, they are normalized to unity using the Eq. 4 (as Fig. 19 illustrates), and then applied to the Eq. 5 to build the weight sequence (as shown in Fig. 20).Fig. 19 |
