Perforated silicon structures backfilled with either B or LiF are presently under construction as high efficiency thermal-neutron detectors. Although many perforated structures are possible, there are three fundamental designs that are studied in the present work, namely (a) cylindrical perforations where holes are filled with neutron reactive material, (b) pillar configurations where semiconductor pillars are surrounded by neutron reactive material, and (c) trench structures where the trenches… CONTINUE READING
