A fast matching charge amplifier for neutron spectroscopy in harsh environment has been developed and tested at the JET Tokamak. This front-end circuit is capable to operate at a distance up to 100 meters from a sensor without increasing its equivalent noise charge. Further improvements are possible by exploiting the intrinsic performance of silicon-germanium bipolar junction transistors.
