Abstract: The detection of neutrons has never been an easy task, and the simulation of such detectors isn't either. Current state-of-the-art codes can't appropriately define the behaviour of low-energy particles, and often their results prove imprecise when faced with the experimental confront. At the LEMRAP group, part of the INFN in Rome, we've developed a new kind of low-energy neutron detector, but there's a need to have a precise knowledge of the setup under which such detector must be assembled. This creates the need to program a model able to accurately describe the behaviour of thermal neutrons inside the instrument and hence allow us to optimise its characteristics. Simulations regarding similar setups can be found in the literature, but none of them is sufficiently coincidental with the theory. With the use of Labview I attempt to create a software that will allow us to further study this detector and improve its features in the future.
