Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to propose the enhancement of device detectors based on p-n junction in 4H-SiC for nuclear instrumentation. Particular emphasis is placed on the interest on using Boron isotope 10 as a Neutron Converter Layer in order to detect thermal neutrons. Here, we present the main results obtained during several irradiation tests performed in the Belgian Reactor 1 (BR1). We show the capability of our detectors by means of first results of the detector response at different reverse voltage biases and at different reactor power.
