Specialty Neutron Instrumentation

Specialty Neutron Instrumentation

Since its founding in 1988, BTI has been recognized as a global leader in neutron instrumentation. Starting with the introduction of its first commercial product–the neutron bubble detector–BTI has continued to develop a long line of neutron detection, neutron dosimetry, and spectroscopic neutron instrumentation. BTI’s instrumentation is used by agencies worldwide including industrial, medical, law enforcement, military, national laboratories, and space agencies.

Neutron Long Counter

The long counter has been and remains an essential tool for quantifying sources of neutrons in essentially all neutron metrology laboratories. Upon request from governmental groups, BTI has constructed a long counter that matches the efficiency performance of the Texas Nuclear Model 9100 system at the 1%-2% level verified over a range of neutron energies from <300 keV to >17 MeV.

BD-PND – Personal Neutron Dosimeter

Bubble Detectors are the most sensitive, accurate, neutron dosimeters available. Used for over 15 years by nuclear facilities, research institutes, military personnel, and the medical community, Bubble Detectors provide instant visible detection and measurement of neutron dose. The BD-PND is the recommended detector for personal neutron dosimetry.

BDT – Bubble Detector Thermal

The Bubble Detector is the only neutron dosimeter where the response is independent of dose rate and energy, with zero sensitivity to gamma radiation. Health physicists and others who are especially concerned with thermal neutron dose can take advantage of the simplicity and low cost of thermal Bubble Detectors. The BDT Bubble Detector is preferentially sensitive to thermalized neutrons, with an exclusion ratio of thermal-to-fast neutron response exceeding 10:1.

BDS – Bubble Detector Spectrometer

Bubble Detectors are the most sensitive, accurate, neutron dosimeters available. Used for over 15 years by nuclear facilities, research institutes, military personnel, and the medical community. The BDS is a complete low-cost neutron spectrometer package consisting of 36 Bubble Detectors that have been specifically formulated with six different energy thresholds.
