Abstract

Fast neutrons propagate significantly in free space with interaction properties that contrast markedly with those of electromagnetic radiation, the latter being fundamental to most wireless communications. Here, we report on the configuration and operation of a nuclear instrumentation set-up designed to transmit digitally encoded information using fast neutrons. We demonstrate the potential of fast neutron radiation as a medium for wireless communications for applications where conventional electromagnetic transmission is either not feasible or is inherently limited.
