Abstract : Surface-barrier silicon detectors of heavy charged particles were used for the detection of thermal neutrons by means of covering them with layers of boron, lithium, or uranium. There were obtained detectors of thermal neutrons with sensitive surface of 10-500 sq mm using silicon with a specific resistance of 265 ohm-cm. and 1,000 ohm-cm. The effectiveness was measured and some characteristics were determined. (Author)
