Développement d'un imageur neutron portable

Abstract : The subject of the thesis aims at developing a portable neutron imager with detection performance compatible with the needs of the nuclear research and industry, in particular those of decommissioning. This thesis is divided into three main areas of research, preceded by a bibliographic research phase. Following the latter, the localization approach adopted is spatial encoding fast neutron imaging. Neutron detectors were studied and several choices adapted to this challenge were selected for the continuation of the study. The first axis is dedicated to the studies on the development of a position-sensitive neutron detector. The second axis is related to the design and prototyping of a portable neutron imager, based on a coded aperture and a Timepix detector enhanced with a paraffin layer. The last axis concerns the deployment and experimental characterization of this prototype.
