Neutron Detection through an SRAM-Based Test Bench


In this paper, we propose a technique for the detection of neutrons that relies on the sensitivity of SRAM cells to particle radiation. In particular, we introduce a system based on a memory test bench that records the neutron reactions in the memory array. This system allows a good flexibility from different points of view. It is conceived to be modular, programmable, low power consuming and portable. Consequently, it can operate in various experimental conditions such as under artificial sources of particles as well as in natural ambience, from the earth surface to spatial environment. The system is also independent of the type of memory, allowing the use and the study of the interaction between particles and electronic devices built with different technologies.
