Construction of the fast neutron monitoring detectors for the COSINE-100 experiment
August 02, 2019
Measurements of the environmental neutron flux in the vicinity of dark matter search experiments are important because signals induced by these neutrons can mimic those that are expected from dark matter interactions. In order to establish a systematic understanding of the environmental neutron flux at the location of the COSINE-100 experiment, we developed a liquid scintillator neutron detector and studied its pulse shape discrimination capabilities and background contamination levels. In this paper, the construction of the neutron monitoring detector is presented.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
