A probabilistic description of neutron scattering in a polycrystalline material

Abstract (Swedish)
The aim of this thesis is to give a statistical description of a neu-
tron traversing a neutron detector system consisting of a polycrys-
talline support material. The material used as support material in
this project is aluminium although the results are applicable to any
polycrystalline material. A mathematical description of the possible
interactions in the detector system will be given, from which the prob-
abilistic nature of neutron scattering will be derived.
Alongside the main results there will also be a shorter mention of a
dierent approach to nding the stochastic behaviour of the neutron
scattering. This approach was however not fully pursued as it did not
produce the expected simplications and results. Last but not... (More)

there will be a discussion about the future work which can be done
and how to continue this project as there is no complete solution to
the entire problem.
