Using of Boron Waste as a Shielding Material on Landmine Detection with NBS Imaging Technique

Title variants
Languages of publication
Boron wastes are produced as a result of production route of boron products and these wastes still contain a small amount of boron. In order to understand the possible use of boron waste in non-metallic landmine detection as a shielding, Monte Carlo simulations were applied by neutron backscattering imaging technique using two different neutron sources of ²⁵²Cf and deuterium-deuterium (D-D) reaction. NBS imaging detector system consists of a group of thermal neutron ³He detectors. To investigate the performance of the landmine detection system, a suitable shield around the neutron source was designed and this system was tested for localisation of buried landmine.
