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.

Here's an interesting list of phosphors that might come in handy.
Anything obvious in high vacuum is probably wrong.

Great info on phosphors! Thanks. I printed mine out to add to my phosphor reference files.

I purchased a couple of the terbium activated, gadolinium oxy-sulfide screens at one of our HEAS conference fleamarkets some years ago. The guy had a pile of 'em, too. Wish I had bought more.

That same guy with the phosphors also tried to build a little fusor:
