A scintillator-based neutron-counting imaging detector with a sub-100-$$mu$$m spatial resolution was developed for energy-selective neutron imaging. The detector head of the detector comprised a thin ZnS/$$^{6}$$LiF scintillator screen, a fibre-optic taper and crossed wavelength-shifting (WLS) fibre arrays. The developed detector had a pixel size of 34 $$mu$$m $$times$$ 34 $$mu$$m, and exhibited spatial FWHM resolutions of 80 $$mu$$m and 61 $$mu$$m in the x and y directions, respectively. A small prototype detector demonstrated the capability of neutron imaging using Bragg edges of a Cu/Fe sample when using the pulsed-neutron source in the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex.
