"Development of a Neutron Multiplicity Counting Experiment at Texas A&M University,"
American Nuclear Society 2013 Student Conference, 4-6 April 2013, Boston, Massachussetts.
Radiation detection has always been one of the primary concepts
which are covered in a nuclear engineering department's
curriculum. However, most universities focus on gamma ray and
charged particle detection. Neutron detection is often only
lectured on in a classroom with no experimental portion to
complement the theory (The University of Michigan being the main
Texas A&M University has taught neutron detection with both
classroom lectures and laboratory experiments for many years, but
has only recently expanded its curriculum to include the advanced
neutron detection method of neutron multiplicity counting.
