Neutron Imaging and Diffraction - 3He detector performance on a scintillator


The LumaCAM is a dedicated solution for neutron imaging beamlines based on a time-resolved event detection system. Time-resolved imaging allows to suppress scintillator afterglow by differentiating neutron events from other radiation. NeutronCAM is as specific for neutron detection as a 3He detector.  

The LumaCAM can be used with nearly every scintillator type, independent of conversion efficiency or decay time, allowing scientists to choose the optimum scintillator for the experiment.

LumaCAM makes use of algorithms developed by Adrian Losko (see Nature Communications publication), allowing live processing of image data during the experiment and achieving super-resolution by using time-based Center-of-Mass integration.L

Key features

LumaCAM System

The NeutronCAM System is a complete neutron imaging solution based on the NeutronCam. The system features a counting-type neutron detection, a specialized light-tight enclosure, and remote-controlled adjustable Field-of-View (FoV). The NeutronCAM System will be the basis for the next generation of neutron diffraction detectors based on event-based cameras – a viable replacement for 3He detectors at every beamline.
