The feasibility of the application of THGEM-detectors for measurement in neutron fields possibly with spectroscopic information, was investigated. After an initial study of the properties of THGEM-based detectors a preliminary configuration of a spectrometric imaging system for fast (0.1 10 MeV) neutrons was proposed and Monte Carlo simulations, using GEANT4 and MCNP4c-5 codes, were performed to assess its properties.
