COMPARISON TO OTHER DETECTOR TECHNIQUES
Detection Efficiencies for thermal, cold and ultra-cold neutrons are superior to other detection principles:

Wavelength/Energy

Demountables + NeuView™ MCP

Scintillators (Li-6 based) + CCD

QE* at 0,9 Å (thermal/epi)

~20%

~5%

1-2 Å (thermal)

~40% (static or dynamic)

10% (static), <0,1 (dynamic/gating)

5 Å (cold)

~40% (static or dynamic)

10% (static), <0,1 (dynamic/gating)

5 Å (cold)

~70%

~25% (static)

30 Å (very cold)

~80%

~30% (static)

Spatial Resolution

~50µm **

>200µm

Temporal Resolution

~100ns

~100ms (ungated),

Gamma Ray Sensitivity

~1% (<10-6)

~1µs (gated)

* Quantum efficiency is a function of neutron energy and operating conditions.
** Dependent upon neutron beam dispersion and readout selected. Current best achieved resolution: 36 µm FWHM.
