Accelerator neutron sources for epithermal neutron capture therapy utilizing the 7Li(p,n) nuclear reaction will require a moderator even in the threshold range of 1.89 to 1.95 MeV. The corresponding neutron energies allow for a thinner reflector and moderator, with less reduction of the epithermal flux. To estimate the useful neutron flux within the(More)
The paper describes the SPHINX facility which includes a wide-aperture magnetic spectrometer with scintillation counters and hodoscopes, proportional chambers and drift tubes, multichannel electromagnetic and hadron calorimeters, a guard system, a RICH velocity spectrometer and a hodoscopical threshold Cherenkov detector for the identification of charged(More)
Accelerator neutron sources for epithermal neutron capture therapy utilising the 7Li(p,n) nuclear reaction are proposed to operate in the range of 1.88 to 2.5 MeV proton energy. Operation with proton energies closer to the reaction threshold decreases neutron yield but allows for smaller reflector and moderator, with less reduction of the epithermal flux,(More)
