Both NCCs are based on the same type and model of thermal neutron counter tubes (3He gas-filled at 10 bar pressure, 1 inch outer diameter).
Given the global scarcity and the resulting cost of 3He gas, the 61 new counter tubes will be filled with 3He gas recovered from spare neutron counter tubes.
The "super high efficiency neutron counter,"--or SuperHENC for short--is designed to prevent items such as aerosol containers are not in the waste that's being shipped to WIPP.
Our result will be improved by an independent absolute calibration of the neutron counter, which would significantly reduce the two largest systematic uncertainties, in the [.
Chief engineer Cliff Dax said he has helped come up with everything from a neutron counter to a detector that can image light reflected off single molecules.
He reports only negative results from his own cold-fusion experiments using a supersensitive neutron counter.
Scientists at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta also had reported measuring neutron fluxes six to 10 times higher than background, but retracted the report on April 14 after discovering problems with their neutron counter.
