Neutrons with an average energy of 9.8±0.8 MeV were irradiated onto silicon carbide Schottky diodes. After bombardment at a fluency of 2.75×1011 neutron/cm2, the Schottky barrier height, ideality factor, and the leakage currents remained unchanged. The electrical properties began to deteriorate after bombardment at a fluency of 5.5×1011 neutron/cm2. In this study, we demonstrate that SiC SBD is robust under neutron irradiations and is well suited for space operations up to bombardments at a fluency of 2.75×1011 neutron/cm2.
