We report direct gain measurements on the 351-nm XeF(B–X) transition in mixtures of 3He/Xe/NF3, pumped with moderated neutrons produced in a fast-burst reactor. The peak small-signal gain was 0.7%/cm at a deposited power of 5 kW/cc in the gas.

    A semiconductor detector coupled with a neutron converter is a good candidate for neutron detection, especially for its compactness and reliability if compared with other devices, such as 3He tubes, even though its intrinsic efficiency is rather lower. In this paper we show a neutron detector...
