Radiation detectors based on radiation-hard semiconductor such as silicon carbide (SiC), have received considerable attention in many applications such as in outer space, high energy physics experiments and nuclear power reactor. For the first time it was demonstrated the reliability of thermal neutron detectors realized by standard ion implantation of boron layer as a neutron converter layer. Moreover, these detectors respond to thermal neutrons and gamma rays showing different counting rates at different voltages and under different types of shielding.
