Neutron Detection Market

Date: 2016-05

Nuclear radiation detection has become a prime importance in today聮s world owing to the huge destruction capabilities and security threats. The neutron detection 3He is currently the dominant material in neutron detection equipment. However, new materials are expected to replace the 3He, which is the biggest growth factor in the radiation detection industry. 3He is the byproduct of tritium production in nuclear weapons manufacturing, which is the major source of obtaining 3He. However, due to the end of cold war, the stock of 3He has decreased significantly. Hence to meet the increasing demand of neutron detection materials, the substitutes such as 10B and 6Li loaded glass or coated fibers are being used.

The report covers the neutron detection market with respect to technology including Geiger counter, Spectroscopy, Organic Scintillator, and Neutron Sandwich. When excited by radiation, the scintillation materials emit a flash of light. These materials are in the form of crystals and paired with a photomultiplier tube, which converts the light flash into an electric signal that indicates the intensity and quantity of the observed radiation. Organic Scintillors is the dominant technology in the neutron detection market.

The report also classifies the market based on types such as Lithium Large-Area Neutron Detector (LLAND), Fast Neutron Detectors, Gas Proportional Detectors, Scintillation Neutron Detectors, and Semiconductor Neutron Detectors. The second major class of detector is the semiconductor-based radiation detectors. The dominant material in this type of detectors is high-purity germanium (HPGe). The report also identifies the major used of neutron detectors which include Portable Backpacks, Handheld Survey Meters, Handheld Radiation Detectors, and Vehicle-Mounted Search Systems. Moreover, the major applications including Portal Monitor Replacement, Urban Detection Networks, Mobile Detection, Discrete Scanning, Cosmic Ray Detection, Special Nuclear Material Detection, Particle Physics, Naval Vessels, Nuclear Power, Healthcare, Military & Homeland Security, Laboratories & Education, Industry & Manufacturing, Reactor Instrumentation, Radiation Safety and others are also covered exhaustively in the report.
