A10 AXIAL - INSTRUMENTED NEUTRON MONITOR
The Instrumented Neutron Probe
The A10 Axial Instrumented Diamond Neutron Monitor integrates detector and spectroscopic amplifier in one solid stainless-steel housing. The Axial Detector can be operated up to 175° C. The sensing volume of the single-pad detector can be enlarged to 9 diamond sensors.
The Axial Instrumented Neutron Monitor is capable of operating at 175° C.

ADDITIONAL PRODUCT INFORMATION
Schematics of the A10 Axial - Instrumented Diamond Neutron Monitor. The detector comprises a diamond sensor and a high-temperature spectroscopic amplifier, which needs to be powered with +12 V.

A low-pass filter is included in the bias line, to suppress potential noise introduced through the HV cable.

The spectroscopic amplifier is AC coupled and has a linear output range of +1 V for a 50 Ω load.
The integrated amplifier of the A10 Axial - Instrumented Diamond Neutron Monitor was calibrated electronically at increasing temperature. The output as function of temperature is shown in the Figure.

The response is stable and well within ±10%. This guarantees a reproducible measurement of fast neutrons at elevated temperatures.
