Solid state physics experimental techniques and characterization tools can provide a valuable contribution to the research and development activity on He-free neutron detection systems, for both detector assessment and performance improvement. Presently, a He replacement strategy relies on the use of 6Li - and/or 10B -based neutron-to-charged particle converters coupled to radiation detectors (solid state, gaseous and scintillators). These topics have been discussed during a devoted session within the HeRe (He- Replacement) in Italy Workshop held in Frascati at the ENEA Research Centre, and this paper aims at presenting a brief overview on possible deposition and characterization techniques of thin films that have been subject of discussion. © 2015, Società Italiana di Fisica and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
