The shortage of3He isotope to be used as optimum neutron absorber in various neutron detection applications is considered. Here we present some general requirements in different applications to introduce more specialized papers which describe recent progresses. Considering that the neutron detection is important in a very wide range of applications we cannot be exhaustive but we describe the most relevant applications which are expected to be important in the next decades.
