Abstract

Solid-state devices for the detection of thermal neutrons may possess many interesting features compared to gas-filled detectors. The AlB12, a wide band gap semiconductor, is an interesting for such a detector, which can be used without cooling, e.g. at room temperature. Monocrystalline AlB12 was grown by crucible free electron beam heating method and the obtained samples have been characterized crystallographically and electrically.
