At the Energy-Resolved Neutron Imaging System RADEN of the J-PARC MLF, we take advantage of the accurate measurement of neutron energy by time-of-flight to perform energy-resolved neutron imaging. To carry out measurements at RADEN, we have been developing and testing cutting-edge detector systems employing micro-pattern detectors and high-speed, all-digital data acquisition systems. One such detector, the Micro Pixel Chamber based Neutron Imaging Detector ($$mu$$NID), provides a spatial resolution of less than 250 $$mu$$m FWHM, 26% detection efficiency for thermal neutrons with $$^3$$He for conversion, and count rate capacity of 8 Mcps. By replacing the $$^3$$He gas with a boron-based converter, we aim to increase the count rate capacity three-fold while maintaining good spatial resolution. This is made possible by the significantly reduced event size for the alpha from the $$^10$$B-neutron interaction as compared to the lighter proton and triton in the $$^3$$He case.
