Abstract
A fast-neutron technique that employs isotopic sources is proposed for the identification of explosive materials. The technique relies on analyzing the spectrum of transmitted neutrons. Identification methods are developed to enable discrimination between explosives and other materials. A threshold-value method and artificial neural networks are used. Monte Carlo simulations, as well as laboratory experiments, are utilized to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed techniques.
