Abstract

A Monte Carlo simulation package, MCNPX version 2.6.0, has been used to evaluate the effect on the response of a spherical neutron detector utilising various numbers of point detectors on the surface of a spherical polyethylene structure which forms an instrument specifically designed for low radiation environments.
