Abstract [en]

Boron-10 loaded liquid scintillators were studied in order to improve n/gamma separation. Pulse shape discrimination (PSD) was implemented by means of a zero-crossing (ZC) method to distinguish between gamma-rays and fast/slow neutrons. Significant progress was done for BC523A2 and EJ339A2 scintillators loaded with reduced amount of B-10 (2% and 2.5%, respectively), as compared to the results obtained earlier with BC523A loaded with 4.4% of B-10. The improvement was probably caused by the reduction of B-10 content, as indicated in the reported study. A B-10 loaded scintillator EJ309B5 based on non- flammable liquid was also studied, showing the best separation of thermal neutron capture events from fast neutrons, gamma-rays and noise.
