A materials qualification program has been developed to irradiate and test candidate materials (alloy 718, Type 316L, and Type 304L stainless steel, modified Fe9Cr-1Mo(T91), Al-6061-T6, and Al-5052-O) for use in the Accelerator Production of Tritium (APT) target and blanket. The irradiations were performed in prototypic proton and neutron spectra at prototypic temperatures (50 to 160°C). The study used the 800-MeV, 1.0-mA proton accelerator at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center, which…

Performance of a Clad Tungsten Rod Spallation Neutron Source Target

Abstract Tungsten rods, slip-clad with Type 304L stainless steel, performed successfully as a spallation neutron source target operating to a peak fluence of ~4 × 1021 p/cm2. The target was used as a

Pitfalls of tungsten multileaf collimator in proton beam therapy.

Tungsten seems to be not an optimal material for MLC in proton beam therapy, which may create unnecessary risks associated with the secondary neutrons and induced radioactivity for patients and staff depending on the patient load.



Thermal analysis of the APT materials irradiation samples

The accelerator production of tritium (APT) project proposes to use a 1.7 GeV, 100 mA proton beam to produce neutrons from an Inconel 718 clad tungsten target. The neutrons are multiplied and

Radiation damage calculations for the APT materials test program

A materials irradiation was performed at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) in the fall of 1996 and spring of 1997 in support of the Accelerator Production of Tritium (APT) program.

Progress report on the accelerator production of tritium materials irradiation program

The Accelerator Production of Tritium (APT) project is developing an accelerator and a spoliation neutron source capable of producing tritium through neutron capture on He-3. A high atomic weight

Accelerator transmutation studies at Los Alamos with LAHET, MCNP, and CINDER`90

In recent accelerator transmutation studies, the CINDER`90 code has been linked with the LAHET Code System and, for high-energy calculations, with SUPERHET and examples of linked calculations are described for some interesting accelerator applications.
