Abstract. We estimated radiation effects of Ni/n-GaAs contact

Schottky in neutron field by FLUKA Monte Carlo Code. Firstly,

we determined elemental ingredients and layer thicknesses of diode

by WDXRF spectroscopy technique. Then irradiation process was

simulated in 1MeV neutron field for Ni/n-GaAs Schottky contact

by FLUKA code. Results were interpreted for the purposes of

Schottky diodes used in radiation applications.
