Radiation damage test of CCD cameras for neutron imaging applications


In the framework of the PANAREA project, aiming to the development of new instruments for neutron imaging on TS2, the determination of geometric, optic, electronic, and aging characteristics of the devices that will be employed assumes a paramount importance.An imaging beamline is usually composed by a collimating device, with one or more jaws to select the beam divergence, a sample area with all typical devices like a scintillator plate (converting neutron flux into light) and a CCD camera for image recording. We have good reasons to believe that this latter component may be substantially affected by the peculiar environment of a pulsed neutron source. We propose to use low cost CCD cameras to determine the effect of both gamma rays and high-energy neutrons, in terms of pixel permanent damaging.
