Detecting Neutrons with a HabaNERO (not the pepper)

Nuclear Physicists Tony Ahn and Zach Meisel stand on the dock at the Edwards Accelerator Lab and behind section of the polyethylene blocks used to slow down neutrons. The holes are where the detectors are placed.

By Jean Andrews Physics & Astronomy Nuclear physicists from the University of Notre Dame, Michigan State University, University of Tennessee, and Central Michigan University visited Ohio University’s Edwards Accelerator Laboratory recently to calibrate a neutron detector called the Heavy ion Accelerated Beam induced (Alpha, Neutron) Emission Ratio Observer, or “HabaNERO.” […]
