Cherenkov counters for the detection of gamma rays from active interrogation
2011 / IEEE / 978-1-4673-0120-6
This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Cherenkov counters for the detection of gamma rays from active interrogation ' Water-based Cherenkov counters are considered for remote detection of special nuclear materials with aid of active interrogation. We designed and manufactured a detector capable of gamma ray detection and demonstrated particle energy discrimination ability. Background reduction techniques based on energy threshold and photomultiplier tube multiplicity were implemented in particle detection. Both approaches resulted in a significant suppression of low-level background.
