Title The Pin Pixel Detector - Neutron Imaging
Abstract The development and testing of a neutron gas pixel detector intended for application in neutron diffraction studies is reported. Using standard electrical connector pins as point anodes, the detector is based on a commercial 100 pin connector block. A prototype detector of aperture 25.4mm x 25.4mm has been fabricated, giving a pixel size of 2.54mm which matches well to the spatial resolution typically required in a neutron diffractometer. A 2-dimensional resistive divide readout system has been adapted to permit the imaging properties of the detector to be explored in advance of true pixel readout electronics. The timing properties of the device match well to the requirements of the ISIS pulsed neutron source.
