Neutron energy spectra and dose-distribution spectra of cyclotron-produced neutron beams.

Neutron energy spectra and spectra of dose deposition in tissue-equivalent material have been measured for neutron sources produced by 16-, 22-, 35-, and 45.5-MeV deuterons and 22.5-, 35-, 45-, and 65.5-MeV protons incident upon a thick beryllium target. Neutron spectra were measured using time-of-flight techniques and the dose distribution was measured… (More)
