Neutron Bombardment Detector

Certain ternary compound light-emitting diodes (LEDs), i.e. GaAlAs types, have been found to exhibit an additional wavelength characteristic after being subjected to a neutron bombardment.

For example, one LED of the GaAlAs type prior to the neutron bombardment had an emission wavelength of 6800 Angstroms. After exposure to a 1x10/14/ neutron/cm/2/ bombardment, it had a double, i.e., concurrent, emission spectra of 6800 Angstroms and 9700 Angstroms.

The device is useful as a neutron bombardment detector.
