We successfully derived the time-dependent flux of pulsed neutrons using a superconducting Nb-based current biased kinetic inductance detector (CB-KID) with a $$^{10}$$B conversion layer at Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex. Our CB-KID is a meander line made of a 40-nm-thick Nb thin film with 1-$$mu$$m line width, which is covered with a 150-nm-thick $$^{10}$$B conversion layer. The detector works at a temperature below 4 K. The evaluated detection efficiency of the CB-KID in this experiment is 0.23% at the neutron energy of 25.4 meV. The time-dependent flux spectra of pulsed neutrons thus obtained are in good agreement with the results obtained by the Monte Carlo simulations.
