Something stronger than buckyfiber?

Not sure, but IIRC the use of magmatter in the vicinity of a magnetar was once discussed. As I recall, even magmatter couldn't withstand the stresses involved, at least for any kind of complex structure. Not sure how much difference there is between a magnetar and a 'normal' neutron star, but it may be close enough that only very crude magmatter objects would have any hope of retaining structure there (think 'stone tool' levels of crude here).

That said, magmatter would still allow operations in far closer proximity to such objects than anything made of conventional matter, even if it was still limited in how close it could get.
