Abstract

The NISC design has the idea of developing a new, miniature, passive/active neutron sensor/detector especially for homeland security applications. Detection efficiency of NISC is mostly depending on the incoming neutron energy. Although NISC efficiency drastically drops for the fast neutrons, it will be feasibly implemented for the thermal neutron detection for homeland security applications.
