Abstract
This proposal is for the design and development of advanced high-efficiency semiconductor thermal neutron detectors in both silicon and silicon carbide. These detectors will provide detectors with neutron conversion efficiency exceeding 40%, depending on detector configuration. The use of annular ring design features eliminates neutron streaming and other undesirable effects of previous perforated coated-diode type detectors.
