高エネルギー加速器施設における適切な放射線管理を行うため、熱エネルギーから100MeVまで測定可能な中性子モニタ用検出器を開発した。この検出器は、円柱状のガラスセルに封入した液体シンチレータの外周に$$^{6}$$Li含有ZnS(Ag)シートを巻き付けた構造を持つ。幾つかの中性子場を用いて特性試験を行った結果、この検出器は、熱中性子及び数MeV以上の高エネルギー中性子による発光を弁別して測定できることが明らかになった。このことから、本検出器は、広帯域中性子モニタ用検出器として十分な性能を有することが確認できた。

For monitoring of neutron doses in high-energy accelerator facilities, we have developed a neutron-monitor detector applicable to energies from the thermal energy to 100 MeV. The detector is composed of a cylindrical (12.7 cm in diameter and 12.7 cm in length) liquid organic scintillator BC501A covered with $$^{6}$$Li+ZnS(Ag) sheets. Characteristics of this phoswitch-type detector were studied experimentally in moderated neutron fields of $$^{241}$$Am-Be and $$^{252}$$Cf sources, and in quasi-monoenergetic neutron fields of 40 and 70 MeV. It was found from the experiments that the detector is enough sensitive to both thermal and fast neutrons, and has an excellent property of pulse-shape discrimination between them. We concluded, therefore, that the detector can be used for monitoring of neutron doses over a wide energy range from the thermal to 100 MeV.
