IAT has developed the 6LiFZnS(Ag) neutron detector for replacemen of 3He detectors providing neutron efficiency and gamma rejection comparable to 3He tube detectors. To increase neutron efficiency and reduce gamma events in our current detector, we propose the reduction of the ZnS(Ag)scintillation material to nano particles to enhance light transmission across the 6LiFZnS(Ag)layer. To further reduce gamma events and increase the abiltiy to separate neutron and gamma signals, we would further propose the replacement of the ZnS(Ag) scintillation material with an alternative scintillation material such as P47-Y2SiO5:Ce.
