Comparison of Conventional L and S-Band Electron Linacs as Pion Sources Suitable for Radiotherapy

A discussion on target configuration and negative pion yield, supported by high power electron beam experimental data, establishes 250-330 kW at 500 MeV to be desirable beam parameters for an electron linac which, in combination with a Stanford carrousel type pion spectrometer, would provide a practical source of ¿- mesons suitable for radiotherapy… CONTINUE READING
