Investigation of a large solid angle pion channel for a medical application utilizing current sheets and solenoid elements

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

For the treatment of tumors with pi-minus mesons (pions), a pion channel with a large solid angle is essential. A parallel beam of uniform density and reasonable size at the patient position is favored from the practical point of view. A new pion channel with sixty toroidal current sheets and some solenoids is shown to meet these requirements. It would also be useful for some physics experiments using low-energy pion and muon beam.
