3M 10B Enriched Boron
Categories: Ceramic

Material Notes: Ceradyne, Inc., a 3M company, uses a unique proprietary process to produce crystalline elemental boron enriched in either 10B or 11B. Because the material only contains boron, maximum utilization of isotope properties is possible. Crystalline 10B, with its high thermal neutron absorption cross section, high isotopic enrichment and lack of other elements in its composition, allows the material to perform at a higher level of thermal neutron absorption performance of any of the possible boron compounds. The high purity of 10B also imparts excellent gamma discrimination. These characteristics make it well suited to neutron detection technologies. In addition, the material has the highest shielding performance of any other available product from Ceradyne, and is useful in applications where limited absorber loading is necessary.
