It is reported on the study of radiation resistance of silicon photomultipliers (sipm) produced by HAMAMATSU. SiPM was irradiated in neutron fluxes of the reactor IBR-2 of JINR. The tested SiPM received fluence from 10^12 up to 2x10^14 of neutrons /cm2. Irradiated detectors investigated using a radioactive source and laser flashes at a temperature of -30C. The measurements showed that the sipm remain fully functional as photon detectors up to neutron fluence 2x10^14 despite a significant increase in noise.
