In this paper, Neutron Activation Technique (NAT) is used for neutron flux mapping in homogenous boron concentrated paraffin wax. For this purpose, activator detectors were prepared by irradiating process in an Americium-Beryllium (241Am–9Be) neutron field for the required time period to induce approximate saturation activity. After this, the induced activity was measured by time coincidence method using a Sodium iodide (thallium) NaI (Tl) crystal detector and organic scintillation “Anthracene” detector for gamma ray and beta particle detection respectively. The activator detectors were activated at different radii from the irradiator neutron source in boron mixed paraffin wax. The flux profile was mapped by measuring induced activity. Errors in measurements and calculations were estimated by Poisson distribution.
