Helium-3 Proportional Counters
Helium-3 neutron detectors are largely sensitive to thermal neutrons and are typically used with a neutron moderator. For this reason, Helium-3 proportional counters are well-suited for measuring substrates high in hydrogen, such as water and oil, where the substrate being measured acts as the moderator.
The Helium-3 neutron detectors are custom-designed to meet specific customer requirements, including extreme conditions such as oil well logging. Electrical characteristics, sensitivity and response time can all be tailored to suit custom applications.
