Abstract  

The advantage of using slats as e.g. NaBr, KBr, AlI3 for monitoring the fluxes of both thermal and epithermal neutrons is discussed and compared with the accepted usual methods. The main advantages are the possible use for fast determination, the use for a large range of fluxes and the lower propagation error than Zr target in the case of relatively low thermal to epithermal fluxes (>10).
