This paper reports about state-of-the-art artificial Single Crystal Diamond (SCD) neutron detectors based on a multilayered structure and grown by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) technique. Multilayered SCD detectors covered with a thin layer of 6LiF allow the simultaneous detection of both slow and fast neutrons and can operate in pulse and current mode. These detectors can also be produced with a thin layer of Boron. Application of SCD detectors to neutron detection around fusion tokamak is reported. Some problems related to the processing of the very fast electrical pulse produced by diamond are addressed and the achieved and foreseen development of the processing electronics is reported as well.
