Description

The Neutron Therapy Facility provides a moderate intensity, broad energy spectrum neutron beam that can be used for short term irradiations for radiobiology (cells) and material science investigations. NTF is an active radiotherapy facility for cancer therapy, however, therapy is only carried out three days per week. This allows the beam to be offered for other uses. The beam has the following properties: broad energy spectrum with a maximum energy of 66 MeV, neutron flux of 2 x 10 8 neutrons/cm 2/sec but only ~35% of this on an hourly basis, maximum irradiation area of approximately 24 cm x 24 cm, pulsed beam, 15 Hz, pulse length up to 62 ╬╝sec, proportionally fewer neutrons for shorter pulse lengths, and HV, BNC signal, and Triax signal/HV patches are available
