Development of a new electronic personal neutron dosemeter using a CMOS active pixel sensor

Abstract : A CMOS active pixel sensor, originally designed for the tracking of minimum ionising charged particles in high-energy physics, has been recently used for the detection of fast neutrons. Data were taken at the IRSN Cadarache facility with a 241Am–Be ISO source and a polyethylene radiator. A high-intrinsic efficiency (1.2 x 10–3) has been obtained. It is in good agreement with both calculations and a MCNPX Monte Carlo simulation. This experiment paves the way for a fully electronic personal neutron dosemeter
