AR2592 - A multi-detector, digitizer based neutron depth profiling device for characterizing thin film materials
Neutron depth profiling (NDP) is a mature, non destructive technique used to characterize the concentration of certain light isotopes in a material as a function of depth by measuring the residual energy of charged particles in neutron induced reactions.In this work, we describe a new NDP instrument design with higher detection efficiency by way of spectrum summing across multiple detectors. The instrument uses a V1724 digitizer running DPP-PHA firmware. Published by the American Institute of Physics.http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4732168

AR2593 - Diamond detectors for fast neutron measurements at pulsed spallation sources
The performance of a single crystal diamond (4.7x4.7x0.5mm3 active volume) detector was tested in the ISIS pulsed neutron beam using biparametric (time of flight and pulse height) data acquisition. The potential use of this detector is discussed in relation to the ChipIr neutron beam line for fast neutron irradiation of electronic components at the ISIS spallation source. In the tests presented, two larger SDDs were coupled to a fast waveform digitizer from CAEN suitable for off-line biparametric analysis.

AR2594 - The EURITRACK Project: Status of a Tagged Neutron Inspection System for Cargo Containers
EURopean Illicit TRAfficking Countermeasures Kit (EURITRACK)- Sixth Framework Programme of the European Commission project (2004-2007). The EURITRACK aims at developing a neutron inspection system for detecting threat materials in cargo containers. Neutron interaction in the container produces specific gamma-rays used to determine the chemical composition of the inspected material. The use of D+T tagged neutrons allows the inspection of a suspect voxel identified by previous x-ray scan. EURITRACK received the 1st prize of the French Trophy of Civil Defense 2007.

AR2611 - High Rate Read-Out Of LaBr(Ce) Scintillator With The CAEN V1720 FADC.
The energy resolution of a LaBr(Ce) detector has been studied as a function of the count rate up to 340 kHz by using a 12bit 250 MS/s V1720 digitizer. The time resolution achieved by processing off line the digitized signals has been also determined. The results are compared with the ones obtained by using standard NIM electronics.

AR2612 - First demonstration of a Compton gamma imager based on silicon photomultipliers
Development of a rugged and person-transportable Compton gamma imager for security investigations of radioactive materials, and radiological incident remediation. The imager is composed of layers of scintillator with light collection for the forward layers provided by SiPMs and for the rear layer by PMTs. Signals from both the SiPM pre-amps and the PMTs are processed by CAEN V1740 digitizers. arXiv:1207.0826v1 [physics.ins-det]. Nucl. Instr. and Meth.

AR2613 - Special nuclear material detection with a mobile multi-detector system
The detection of special nuclear material has been studied with a mobile inspection system used both as a high sensitivity passive neutron/gamma spectroscopic tool and as an active inspection device using tagged neutrons. The detection of plutonium samples seems to be possible with passive interrogation, even for small samples. The passive detection of uranium is much more difficult because of the low neutron yield and of the easiness of shielding the gamma ray. However, we show that active interrogation with tagged neutrons is able to provide signatures for the discrimination of uranium against other heavy metals.

AR5151 - Uncovering Special Nuclear Materials by Low-energy Nuclear Reaction Imaging
Scientists have designed a novel low-energy nuclear reaction imaging technique to detect the presence of nuclear materials such as weapons-grade uranium and plutonium in cargo containers The method relies on a combination of neutrons and high-energy photons to detect shielded radioactive materials inside the containers. The signals produced by photon and neutron detectors were digitized using 14-bit, 500-MHz, 8-channel desktop digitizers (CAEN DT5730). Rose, P. B. et al.

AR5553 - Neutron-gamma discrimination via PSD plastic scintillator and SiPMs
This paper presents a system devised to separate neutron and gamma ray pulses through pulse shape discrimination (PSD) using liquid scintillators and SiPM technology. The raw SiPM pulses are processed using CAEN digitizer (V1730 and V1751). Pulses were processed either through the on-board Digital Pulse Processing (DPP) PSD algorithms, allowing the digitisers Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) to perform the charge integration, or the waveform was simply recorded for post-processing with external, in-house analysis software.
