Neutron beams produced by bombarding a 10 cm thick beryllium target with 50 MeV deuterons have been used at Louvain-la-Neuve since nearly 4 years for routine therapeutic applications. At the end of 1981 they were replaced by neutron beams produced by 65 MeV protons on beryllium, mainly in order to improve the beam penetration in tissues. However, produced… CONTINUE READING
