Title:
Design and Advanced Preparation of Multilayer Converters for Ultracold-Neutron Detectors 
Abstract:
For experiments at the planned ultracold neutron (UCN) source of the new Munich research reactor (FRM II) highly efficient UCN detectors must be developed. The principle of this type of detector is the conversion of UCN in 6Li layers into 2.06 MeV a-particles and 2.73 MeV t-particles created in the reaction 6Li(n,a)t. Since the a- and t-particles are emitted in opposite direction, each reaction of a neutron with a 6Li atom could be identified, e.g. in a silicon PIN diode. The design of an UCN co...    »
