Abstract

Using Monte Carlo method features of 10B+ZnS(Ag) neutron detector under real operational conditions has been calculated, this results were compared against measurements. This detector is a viable substitute for 3He detectors installed in custom borders to prevent the illicit traffic of special nuclear materials, SNM.
