Greetings Louie,

I have a probe, meter, and rem ball (you can insert or remove the probe) for
sale.  Let me know if you are still interested.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Neutron Detection Instrument Recommendation

I received an atypical "Friday afternoon" question from a researcher and
wanted to share with the list.  His interest is in detecting ambient thermal
neutrons via boron interactions.  Essentially he's looking for a "bare" BF3
detection instrument without a polyethylene moderator.  Hoping to garner
ideas for commercial off the shelf products (or close to it) that might fit
the bill?  Most results I found in quick internet searches of common
radiation safety instrumentation providers yielded instruments that are
either moderated or have moved to He-3 detector designs.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
