High-intensity lasers are an effective source for the acceleration of high-energy particles. Using different interaction configurations, such facilities can be optimized for the acceleration of electrons, protons, heavy ions, high-energy photons, or neutrons. The shielding of these facilities to ensure the safety of personnel has always been a critical requirement and is a fundamental step within the design phase. The knowledge of radiation source terms through both experiments and modelling is… CONTINUE READING
