Testing uranium ore and thorium alloy using high resolution scintillators

This area is for discussions involving any fusion related radiation metrology issues. Neutrons are the key signature of fusion, but other radiations are of interest to the amateur fusioneer as well.

That is a nice Scintillator test and the LaBr scintillator looks to be a good bit better on resolution than the NaI:Tl one. Thanks for sharing. What were the collection times? Just curious.
