With the support of an international agency, NeutronOptics Grenoble has developed a compact neutron camera for fast neutron tomography using a PSI/RC-TriTec PP scintillator. This scintillator can be exchanged in-situ for thermal neutron or gamma scintillators to test for these beam components. The FOV with a cooled 16-bit 1" Sony CCD is 125x100 mm or 85x70 mm with 2750x2200 pixels and up to 8x8 binning. Newport Micro-Controle (France) mechanics for tomography are synchronised with the camera using simple *.bat Windows scripts. The L-shaped periscope design allows good radiation protection, and simplicity and low repair cost mean that inexperienced students can use the camera with minimal supervision.
