Project description

BrightnESS is a large infrastructure project within HORIZON2020. Part of the project concerned addressing the resolution challenge. In this activity, we developed neutron detectors based on MEIXPIX-type readout electronics using silicon sensors coated with a suitable neutron converter. Resolutions below 100 um can then be achieved.
