Neutron Shielding

Description

Neutron Shielding is a polyethylene container with dispersed low atomic element materials to effectively moderate or thermalize incident neutrons. Surrounding the container is Bismuth shielding material to reduce dose from gamma radiation produced from neutron capture interactions. Using this combination, we can effectively attenuate many levels of Alpha particles and its high-intensity by-products.
