The development of a thermal neutron imaging sensor constructed with semiconducting lithium indium diselenide is presented. Both a computational and experimental investigation were conducted. In the computational investigation, it is shown that the imaging potential of Lithium Indium Diselenid (LISe) is excellent, even when using a large pixel pitch through the use of super sampling. In the experimental investigation, it was found that a single pixel LISe detector using detector super sampling shows a spatial variation in the count rate, which is a clear sign of imaging capability. However, a good image was not obtained in the first experiment and may be caused by a variety of experimental conditions. Finally, a search is still underway to find a suitable contact metal with good mechanical adhesion for wedge bonding.
