An accurate characterization of the neutron fields at spallation sources is crucial for many applications based on neutron irradiations, such as radiation damage tests that need a precise dose estimate. In this work we present the neutron flux measurements performed with the multi-foil activation technique in the ROTAX and ChipIr beamlines of the ISIS spallation source, characterized by moderated and unmoderated spectra, respectively. We selected many different activation reactions to cover a…

Characterization of TRIGA RC-1 neutron irradiation facilities for radiation damage testing
This paper presents the results of neutron flux measurements at two irradiation facilities of the TRIGA Mark II reactor at ENEA Casaccia Research Center, Italy. The goal of these measurements is to
Dosimetry of Thermal Neutron Beamlines at a Pulsed Spallation Source for Application to the Irradiation of Microelectronics
Gas electron multiplier (GEM) detectors and activation foils have been used for dosimetry of thermal beamlines of a pulsed neutron source. The first is an active detector that performs measurements
Introduction to spallation physics and spallation-target design
When coupled with the spallation process in appropriate target materials, high-power accelerators can be used to produce large numbers of neutrons, thus providing an alternate method to the use of
Thermal Neutrons: a Possible Threat for Supercomputers and Safety Critical Applications
It is shown that thermal neutrons FIT rate could be comparable to the high energy neutron FIT rates, which are close to that of the low energy Boron rate.
