Is one referring to a liquid or crystal scintillator with which to detect neutrons?I am trying to model the distribution of the light emission from a material when excited with neutrons in MCNP. I have been searching literature and found not many things. Could anyone provide me with sources from which I can get info?
Is this a borated plastic scintillator?It is a plastic scintillator. And there will be a amorphous silicon behind it. I am not sure whether mcnp takes into account scintillation though.
I don't believe MCNP directly calculates the optical (from scintillation) response from the medium. However, LANL, which maintains MCNP is developing a tool-kit to enable the calculation of the detector response. The model is called DRiFT.My aim is to track the emitted light originated from the neutron-scintillator interaction.
