Would there be any significant advantage, experimentally, in running a pair of scintillation neutron counters (BC720/PMT)? The rates (background/neutron) could be compared against each other. If they were at different distances, the rates should vary inverse square.
Or, perhaps, different kinds of scintillation plastic (thermal vs fast neuts)?
Or two different view angles into the same block of plastic?
