Radiation damage of the ILC positron source target

  title={Radiation damage of the ILC positron source target},
  author={Andriy Ushakov and Sabine Riemann},
  journal={arXiv: Accelerator Physics},
The radiation damage of the positron source target for the International Linear Collider (ILC) has been studied. The displacement damage in target material due to multi-MeV photons has been calculated by combining FLUKA simulations for secondary particle production, SPECTER data for neutron displacement cross-sections and the Lindhard model for estimations of displacement damage by ions. The radiation damage of a stationary Ti6Al4V target in units of displacements per atom (dpa) has been…

Calculation of Radiation Damage in SLAC Targets

Ti-6Al-4V alloys are being considered as a positron producing target in the Next Linear Collider, with an incident photon beam and operating temperatures between room temperature and 300 C.

FLUKA: A Multi-Particle Transport Code

This report describes the 2005 version of the Fluka particle transport code. The first part introduces the basic notions, describes the modular structure of the system, and contains an installation

SPECTER: neutron damage calculations for materials irradiations

Neutron displacement damage-energy cross sections have been calculated for 41 isotopes in the energy range from 10/sup -10/ to 20 MeV. Calculations were performed on a 100-point energy grid using
