We found that the sizes of the Gd islands determined from the transmission image correlated strongly with those determined from the SEM image. We demonstrated the CB-KID could be used to identify (1) tiny voids in a thermally sprayed continuous Gd$$_2$$O$$_3$$ film in and (2) various mosaic morphologies and different eutectic microstructures in Wood's metal samples. The fact that the CB-KID system could be used to identify features of samples with a wide distribution of sizes and thicknesses is promising for real application of the device for imaging samples of interest to material scientists. Operating the CB-KID at higher temperatures appreciably improved the efficiency for simultaneously identifying the X and Y positions of hotspots. We also compared the detection efficiency with the PHITS simulations. We now plan to improve the detection efficiency by increasing the thickness of the $$^{10}$$B neutron conversion layer

We demonstrated that a four-readout superconducting neutron imaging system shows good spatial heterogeneity and linearity using the delay-line method. We examined the precise pattern of a $$^{10}$$B-dot-array absorber and found the X-direction pitch (Px) = 250.7 um with a scatter of (Hx)= 5.4 um and the Y-direction pitch (Py)= 249.1 um with a scatter of (Hy)= 3.4 um while the $$^{10}$$B dot array was fully extended toward the X direction across the detector sensitive area. We consider that this demonstrates detection with good spatial homogeneity and conclude. The transmission-imaging system is suitable for use at pulsed neutron facilities. We also reported a clear transmission image of tiny screws and nuts, and ladybug (insect). We recognize that further efforts to improve the detection efficiency are necessary to make using the detector more practical.

Our CB-KID neutron imager detects high spatial resolution neutrons transmission images by using a delay-line technique. We found that the number of events was remarkably increased with increasing the detector temperature until close to the critical temperature Tc. We investigated the properties of CB-KID at near Tc. We observed systematic changes of neutron signals as a function of the detector temperature from 4 K to Tc. The simulations modeled the sequential physical processes for $$^{10}$$B(n,$$alpha$$)$$^{7}$$Li reactions and energy deposition by particles within CB-KID, including neutrons, $$^{4}$$He particles, $$^{7}$$Li particles, photon and electron transport.

We successfully derived the time-dependent flux of pulsed neutrons using a superconducting Nb-based current biased kinetic inductance detector (CB-KID) with a $$^{10}$$B conversion layer at Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex. Our CB-KID is a meander line made of a 40-nm-thick Nb thin film with 1-$$mu$$m line width, which is covered with a 150-nm-thick $$^{10}$$B conversion layer. The detector works at a temperature below 4 K. The evaluated detection efficiency of the CB-KID in this experiment is 0.23% at the neutron energy of 25.4 meV. The time-dependent flux spectra of pulsed neutrons thus obtained are in good agreement with the results obtained by the Monte Carlo simulations.

Li$$_{2}$$B$$_{4}$$O$$_{7}$$単結晶上に製作した超伝導トンネル接合素子(STJ)による低温中性子検出器の中性子/$$gamma$$線弁別性能を評価した。本検出器はLiあるいはBでの中性子核反応の結果励起される多数の低エネルギーフォノンを単結晶表面に製作されたSTJ素子により測定することで中性子を検出する。本検出器のX線(5.9keV),$$gamma$$線(1.17, 1.33MeV)、及び中性子に対する放射線応答特性を詳細に測定した結果、STJ素子のフォノン検出信号波形の立ち上がり時間が放射線種により異なることを初めて明らかにし、この特徴を利用することで$$gamma$$線,X線などのバックグランド信号と中性子信号とを簡便に弁別できることを確認した。
