Paper Abstract

We report further studies on the neutron detection capabilities of boron carbide/Si heterjunction diodes. In particular, we investigate the behavior of these diodes in the presence of low neutron flux. The spectrum is compared with previous data obtained in the high neutron flux environment in the irradiation sample well of a TRIGA reactor.
