How LiNDA3 Compares
Advantages of LiNDA compared with other N-detector technologies:
Detector type Size/scalability Cost Gamma rejection
He-3 G-M tubes medium-large High good
BF3 G-M tubes medium-large high good
Scintillators:
  LiF w/ PMT or SiPM
  LiF/ZnS(Ag)
  CLYC

1 All types can be configured to yield >30% thermal neutron efficiency; some easier than others.
2 Some types have limitations due to microphonics, temp sensitivity, moisture sensitivity, etc.
3 Li or B must be isotopically enriched to Li-6 and B-10.
