Where to get neutron bubble dosimeters and neutron shielding

This area is for discussions involving any fusion related radiation metrology issues. Neutrons are the key signature of fusion, but other radiations are of interest to the amateur fusioneer as well.

Where to get neutron bubble dosimeters and neutron shielding

Post by Arvin Singh » Sun Dec 18, 2016 12:19 pm

I have a goal of reaching up to 500,000 neutrons/sec and to be able to irradiate many materials such as Potassium-39 with thermal neutrons. I also want to be able to direct the neutron by having shielding on all sides except in the firing hole. But I really would need a neutron detector to keep me safe and to tell whether radiation is leaking or not.

Again this should have been posted in the new user chat area
You have not done a simple search as this has been discussed many many many times before

There so much to learn about neutron physics in this effort. Yet, much of what the fusioneer, at the amateur level, really needs to possess can be condensed in perhaps a rather expansive FAQ.
I may make an attempt keep your eye on the radiation forum. There are many wrong headed and silly ideas related to neutron production, neutron types, shielding and using neutrons as nuclear bullets.
