A scintillating detector and its data acquisition system are being developed for neutron scattering experiments. An Anger camera with a 64-channel flat panel PMT is used. The fast DAQ system discriminated and eliminated noise events from neutron events. WLS materials are being developed to use high quantum efficiency PMT.
