RPC neutron sensitivity has been studied during two tests done with different neutrons energies. In the first test, neutrons from spontaneous fission events of Cf-252 were used (average energy 2 MeV); while in the second test neutrons were produced using a 50 MeV deuteron beam on a 1 cm thick beryllium target (average energy 20 MeV). Preliminary results show that the neutron sensitivity in double gap mode is (0.52 +/- 0.03) x 10(-3) at about 2 MeV and (5.3 +/- 0.5) x 10(-3) at about 20 MeV.
