    Experimental results are presented on the neutron scintillating properties of a custom-designed Praseodymium-doped Lithium-6 glass for a new deuterium-deuterium (DD) fusion scattered-neutron detector. Luminescence was observed at 278 nm-wavelength, and time-resolved measurement yielded ∼5.4 ns decay time for neutron excitation. Actual time-of-flight data in laser fusion experiments at the GEKKO XII facility at the Institute of Laser Engineering (ILE), Osaka University reveal that it can clearly discriminate fusion primary-neutrons from the x-ray signals. This material promises the realization of more accurate DD fusion scattered-neutron diagnostics. Design work for a scattered-neutron detector is being conducted for the Fast Ignition Realization Experiment (FIRE-X) at ILE.
