Abstract

Neutron image plates (NIP) provide a mean for the two-dimensional, position-sensitive detection of neutrons. They combine the advantages of a large dynamic range (up to 5 orders of magnitude), good spatial resolution (⩽300 μm) and large detection areas. NIPs are used at various instruments for powder or single-crystal diffraction in numerous radiation facilities. They have also found an application in neutron radiography and can be used for small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) such as at the Structure Powder DIffractometer (SPODI) at the FRM-II. In this study, the resolution of a novel type of ceramic NIPs based on KCl:Eu2+–LiF is presented and simulations on the applicability of NIPs for neutron detection at the SANS apparatus of SPODI are reported.
