1. An arrangement for detecting neutrons, the arrangement comprising:
a first neutron detector including at least some helium, and the first neutron detector having an associated gain performance; and
a second neutron detector including at least some helium and at least some additional, different neutron-sensitive substance, and the second neutron detector having an associated gain performance;
wherein the gain performance of the second neutron detector matching the gain performance of the first neutron detector.
