Abstract: This work was carried out in view of the possible use of diamond detectors as high resolution neutron spectrometers for the ITER project. An MCNP5(X) based computational tool has been developed to simulate the fast neutron response of diamond detectors. The source neutrons are generated by a source routine, developed earlier, that includes deuteron beam energy loss, angular straggling, and two-body relativistic kinematics. The diamond detector routine calculates a pulse height spectrum that is built up by elastic and inelastic scattering, (n,a), (n,p), and (n,d) reaction channels. A combination of nuclear data from ENDF/B-VII.0, TENDL-2010, and ENSDF is used. The simulated spectra are compared with measured spectra. It is shown that the simulation tool allows an interpretation of most of the characteristic features in the spectrum. This is an important step towards the use of diamond detectors for spectral analysis and fluence measurements.
