The TN-15 high sensitivity thermal neutron detector utilizes a state-of-the-art Silicon photosensor (SiPM) and offers world-leading specification in a compact form. The TN-15 surpasses the performance of a 100 mm long 13 mm 3He tube at four atmospheres. This highly compact device is completely self-contained, with a built-in preamplifier, shaping amplifier, pulse discrimination, and HV supply. The digitized neutron data is sent to a PC via the mini-USB which also powers the unit, so no external power supply is required.

Features

  • Surpasses the performance of a 100 mm long, 13 mm diameter He³ tube at four atmospheres
  • All-in-one detector, electronics, and MCA
  • Miniaturized package:
    131 x 33 x 24 mm, 110 g
  • USB Connection to PC for control and power
  • Power consumption: <250 mW

Software

The TN-15 comes with K-Spect, entry-level Windows®-based (XP/Vista/7/8) software built for detailed sample and spectral analysis. K-Spect, which is available to download, free of charge, from our website, provides the spectrum acquisition, display, analysis, and storage functions.

SIGMA Compact CsI Scintillation Spectrometer

SIGMA Compact CsI Scintillation Spectrometer

Description

The SIGMA family is based on a CsI scintillator crystal coupled to a “state-of-the-art” SiPM (Silicon Photomultiplier) detector, high voltage, electronics and integrated MCA. All communication and power are provided over the mini-USB connector.

The SIGMA family comes in two scintillator sizes. The SIGMA25 has a 1 in³ CsI detector and the SIGMA50 has a 2 in³ CsI detector. All other aspects of the two devices are identical. Both units have a FWHM resolution specification of 7.2% at 662 keV, which is comparable to many NaI based solutions.

The profile of the SIGMA detectors makes them ideal for many portable spectroscopy applications where size, weight and power constraints are very important. The embedded MCA has a fixed number of channels, fixed high voltage and gain that provides a simple interface that is easy to setup and operate with essentially no configuration.

Features

  • All-in-one detector, electronics, and MCA
  • Includes CsI scintillator detector with SiPM (No photomultiplier tube)
  • Resolution better than 7.2% (at 662 keV)
  • Small overall size, but big performance

NAID NaI Detector

NAID NaI Detector

Description

The NAID is a NaI detector specially designed for use in the measurement of uranium enrichment, and is used by the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, Austria, and other safeguards related organizations. This detector is designed to be used in a variety of environments and, when combined with the CANBERRA IMCA uranium enrichment analyzer, permits automation of the energy calibration and temperature compensation. This detector employs a 241Am seed and thermistor mounted together with the 5.1 cm diameter by 1.3 cm thick NaI crystal. The americium acts as a pulser that produces a photopeak at the gamma-equivalent-energy (GEE) of approximately 3.0 MeV which is high enough to prevent interference with the 185.7 keV gamma peak produced from the decay of 235U. The seed and thermistor combination allows for automation of the energy calibration and compensation for differences in temperature drifts between the 185.7 keV peak and the 3.0 MeV GEE peak. The entire detector assembly is located within an integral, sealed housing.

The NAID is the detector of choice for situations demanding robust performance. The rugged housing of the NAID protects and secures the fragile internal components against minor impacts, and is splash resistant. The heavy duty LEMO single piece connector greatly simplifies setup with no individual BNC connectors to contend with and is extremely strong. It snaps securely into the detector and is easily disconnected with gloved hands.

Every NaI detector has a unique gain drift as a function of temperature. Each NAID may be optionally characterized by placing the detector in a temperature chamber and plotting the drift in the 185.7 keV and 3.0 MeV GEE peaks and thermistor value over a temperature ranges of –10 to +50 °C. This data is provided to the IMCA software in the form of a table. Stability of the system is 0.5% from –10 to +50 °C. This technique eliminates the individual temperature matching of NAIDs to analyzers, and allows any detector to be used with any IMCA.

CANBERRA offers the NAID with LEMO connector, cable, and temperature characterization service that enables operation with full automatic stabilization and energy calibration of the IMCA in PMCN mode. See IMCA literature for details.

Features

  • Americium seed with thermistor provides total automated energy calibration capability
  • Ruggedized, housing integrates all detector components, including preamplifier
  • Splash resistant design
  • Extended temperature operation range: –10 to +50 °C
  • Rugged, integrated connector simplifies detector connections for error free operation

LABR-1.5x1.5 - LaBr3(Ce) Scintillation Detector

LABR-1.5x1.5 - LaBr3(Ce) Scintillation Detector

Description

Model LABR-1.5x1.5 Lanthanum Bromide Scintillation Detector is a medium-resolution scintillation detector featuring a 1.5 x 1.5 in. LaBr3(Ce) crystal in a hermetically sealed aluminum housing, including a photomultiplier tube, an internal magnetic/light shield, and a 14-pin connector.

The LABR-1.5x1.5 LaBr3(Ce) detector is completely compatible with the signal processing electronics normally used with NaI(Tl) scintillation detectors. However, the performance of the LABR-1.5x1.5 is superior to that of NaI(Tl) detectors. No adapters are required for direct connection of tube base preamplifiers or MCAs to the 14-pin PMT base. The better resolution, efficiency and relatively short decay time (16 ns) allow these detectors to be used with more complex spectra than scintillation detectors based on NaI(Tl) as well as in other applications previously thought to be too demanding for any scintillation detector. On the other hand, the LaBr3(Ce) detectors are not well-suited for low-level application due to their relatively high intrinsic background from the decay of 138La.

Model LABR-1.5x1.5 plugs directly into the Model 2007 Tube Base as well as into Model 2007P combination tube base and preamplifier. Model 2007/2007P connect to an MCA or other standard signal processing electronics.

However, the most powerful combination is to use the LABR-1.5x1.5 with the Osprey™ – CANBERRA’s all-in-one HVPS, preamplifier, and digital MCA.

Features

  • Approximately half the FWHM of comparable sized NaI(Tl) detectors above 350 keV
  • Higher efficiency than similarly sized NaI(Tl) detectors – 1.2-1.65 times above 350 keV
  • Room temperature operation and same form factor as NaI(Tl) detectors
  • Directly compatible with traditional scintillation detector electronics and multi-channel analyzers
  • All-metal housing with a magnetic/light shield
