  • Analysis of Neutron Damage in HighTemperature Silicon Carbide JFETs

    Neutron-induced displacement damage effects in n-channel, depletion-mode junction-fleld-effect transistors (JFETs) fabricated on 6H-silicon carbide are reported as a function of temperature from room temperature (RT) to 300°C. The data are analyzed in terms of a refined model that folds in recently reported information on the two-level ionization energy structure of the nitrogen donors. A value of 5 ± 1 cm-3 per n/cm2 is obtained for the deep- level defect introduction rate induced by the neutron irradiation. Due to partial ionization of the donor atoms at RT, the carrier removal rate is a function of temperature, varying from 3.5 cm-1 at RT to 4.75 cm-1 at 300°C. The relative neutron effect on carrier mobility varies with temperature approximately as T-7/2, dropping by an order of magnitude at 300°C compared with the RT effect. The results offer further support for the use of SiC devices in applications which combine high-temperature and severe radiation environments, where the use of Si and GaAs technologies is limited.

  • Wireless, Invessel Neutron Monitor for Initial CoreLoading of Advanced Breeder ReactorsResearch sponsored by the Division of Research and Technology, U.S . Department of Energy under contract W7405eng26 with the Union Carbide Corporation.

    An experimental wireless, in-vessel neutron monitor is being developed to measure the reactivity of an advanced breeder reactor as the core is loaded for the FIRST time to preclude an accidental criticality incident. The environment is liquid sodium at a temperature of 220°C, with negligible gamma or neutron radiation. With ultrasonic transmission of neutron data, no fundamental limitation has been observed after tests at 230°C for >2000 h. The neutron sensitivity was l count/s-nv, and the potential data transmission rate was 104 counts/s
