Abstract

A digital neutron–γ imaging technique for mixed radiation field is described. The imaging system is based upon an organic liquid scintillator detector, a narrow tungsten collimator, fast digitiser and adjustable equatorial mount. Radioactive sources have been attached to a vertical plane and the digitiser has been used to digitise neutron and γ events. The digitised events have been discriminated using pulse gradient analysis and images have been generated of the count distribution in the source plane.
