We carried out simultaneous measurement of SERs and cosmic ray neutron spectra for the first time. We measured SERs using 90 nm CMOS SRAM chips and measured neutron spectra using a Bonner multisphere spectrometer. We carried out the SER field measurement at the 4200 m summit of Mauna Kea, which is the most suitable place for SER field measurements because the neutron flux is over 10 times greater there than that at sea level. Therefore, we could avoid making field measurements that usually require a long measuring time (about a year) to obtain sufficient accuracy.
