Bob Higgins open sources affordable corona discharge Neutron detection system [UPDATE#3 - Bob Higgins published version 1.0 of his apparatus]

Written by Robert Greenyer on .

Since we appear to have observed thermal Neutron emissions in our recent *GlowStick* 5.3 experiment by way of industry standard Bubbletech detectors, we have been made aware of a number of researchers that have observed them too. Of course, we already knew that Piantelli and Focardi had observed them in their work without much understanding of the reactants used at that time. However, there is mounting evidence:-

- On closer inspection of Dr. Edmund Storms paper from 2012, where he deduces that his observed 109 minute decay has come from 'activation' of K41 in his Geiger counters mica window, Ecco suggested that this could come from n,p knockout reaction making K41 > Ar41 which decays via Beta emission over 109 minutes. This would imply that neutrons were being emitted from the reactor which contained Nickel exposed to hydrogen.

- me356's observations of emitted Neutrons from a reactor that uses transition metals and hydrogen, claimed to be controllable

- Clean Planet patent application claiming controllable Neutron emissions from apparatus including prepared Nickel and Hydrogen

- Observation of Neutrons from apparatus containing transition metals and Hydrogen by Russian researchers

- Observations of Neutrons by Ubaldo Mastromatteo in apparatus containing powders and Hydrogen

- Dr. Stoyan Sarg's predictions of a mechanism for production of Neutrons in Nickel + Lithium + Hydrogen

It has become clear that researchers should have a means of detecting Neutrons in their work and the Bubbletech solution should be considered by all. They do have limitations though - they need to be re-set periodically and do not work above 40C. In addition, it is difficult to know the precise event timings - we were lucky to observe a few appearing on our live broadcast recordings, but this is not a practical solution for all. A better solution would be to have a reliable method of detecting Neutrons which is more temperature resilient and capable of precise event timing and counting.

To that end, MFMP collaborator Bob Higgins has been working on a Neutron detection system and to his great credit, he is open sourcing it. It uses Russian CHM 32 Corona tubes available on E-Bay for around $50. He has written a paper about it which is still being updated and has designed PCBs - the full works. If researchers are interested in securing a kit, please let us know.

UPDATE#1 - prototype functional

Bob Higgins has finished the first prototype of his 3He Neutron counter...
 
A patch board had to be added to fix a layout oversight that will be corrected in the next version of the boards - however, it is functioning nicely counting cosmogenic neutrons which produce nice clean pulses.
 
The slit in the HDPE is to allow thermal neutrons directly in.

UPDATE#2 - Major update to Bob Higgins' Open Source Neutron detector paper

UPDATE#3 - Bob Higgins published version 1.0 of his apparatus 

2 boards have been shipped to Alan Goldwater who has started assembly (he already has two CCCP CHM-32 3He tubes) and 3 boards have been sent to Ryan Hunt at HUG who will assemble them to join the 3 tubes in Aarhus for the experiments there.
 
Mathieu Valat in France already has two more standard Neutron detectors in his lab.

So, additional efforts have to be undertaken to develop the visiting page of your website.
There is absolutely no point in finding one of the great London Accountants only to

Taking a look at other company's websites within a particular niche field can clue you in to what's being
actively searched for, and what's not.

While it may take a little while for changes in design culture to filter out into
the more remote regions of the UK, London because of its position as the capital city gets to see new concepts first, thanks to a plethora of exhibitions and shows dedicated to web
design.
