First tests of Li-6 doped glass scintillators for ultracold neutron detection.

Abstract : We report the results of test measurements aimed at determining the performances of [.sup.6]Li doped glass scintillators for the detection of ultra-cold neutrons. Four types of scintillators, GS1, GS3, GS10 and GS20, which differ by their [.sup.6]Li concentrations, have been tested. The signal to background separation is fully acceptable. The relative detection efficiencies have been determined as a function of the neutron velocity. We find that GS10 has a higher efficiency than the others for the detection of neutrons with velocities below 7 m/s. Two pieces of scintillators have ...
