Russian neutron detector will help the Japanese in Fukushima

In the spring of 2017, Japanese research institute Mitsubishi chose a consortium of several scientific divisions of Rosatom to manufacture a highly sensitive neutron detector suitable for operation under extreme conditions of high gamma radiation. The new detector will begin to search for contaminants at Fukushima in the fall of this year, the Russian State Scientific Centre for Robotics and Technical Cybernetics informs.

The size of the detector is less than that of its counterparts, says the message — just two by four centimetres, so that it can be used in the destroyed station «Fukushima-1.» The detector can withstand radiation at 1000 Gy and higher, while the other electronics do not work even when exposed to just a few hundred grays.

The detector will help find where exactly radioactive fuel fragments are accumulated, which will need to be removed later during dismantling of emergency power units of the Japanese nuclear power plant.
