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.

Those wishing to design their own signal processing electronics for nuclear detectors might do well to steal over to www.physics.lbl.gov/~spieler, and do some heavy downloading. Contained there are some exquisitely detailed lecture notes in *.pdf format expounding on detectors and signal processing techniques for nuclear instrumentation. Spieler doesn't get into any real down and dirty circuit design details, but you definitely get some good ideas as to the direction you should be going, as well as how to avoid some common troubles regarding grounding and shielding.
Ahem, yes - my bad. I'll look closer next time. However, I think you'll find that the information was worth the hunt. That's www-physics.lbl.gov/~spieler/, for everyone else. The prize is a 190-odd page set of course notes in pdf format on signal processing for nuclear instrumentation. It's a 3Meg+ download...
