A real-time n/γ detection prototype system using NaIL scintillator is presented in this paper. The use of Silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) array enables low-power and compact-geometry applications. A high-speed waveform sampling board based on analog-to-digital converter (ADC) is employed, and a discrimination algorithm is implemented in the FPGA of the sampling board. Gamma detection test using 22Na, 137Cs, and 60Co shows that NaIL has same gamma performance with standard NaI:Tl. Differences between the gamma and neutron signal are showed using pulse shape discrimination algorithm with an americium/beryllium (AmBe) source.
