Abstract

Abstract The paper demonstrates that lithium magnesium aluminosilicate glasses containing ∼ 8 wt% of 3L 6 as the neutron detector are the preferred detectors for high intensity pulsed neutron experiments. The Physics of the glasses is reviewed, and a novel fabrication method leading to significantly improved gamma ray rejection detectors is described. Measurements of luminescence decay times as a function of temperature over the range 4–700 k are shown to lead to a model for the glass performance. Fabrication of the glasses is outlined.
