For evaluating neutron optical devices, we have developed the two-dimensional position-sensitive neutron detectors (PSND) of the crossing fibre array type. In parallel, we have studied the PSNDs of the direct coupling type with flat panel photomultiplier tubes for responding to various spatial resolutions with high detection efficiency. This paper views and reports on the recent status of development of PSNDs based on neutron scintillators in neutron optics group.
