Neutron production by Ne and Si ions on a thick Cu target at 670 MeV/A with application to radiation protection

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Beams of neon and silicon at 670 MeV/A from the Bevalac were stopped in a copper target. Neutron yields and angular distributions were measured with activation detectors. Attenuation of neutrons through a concrete shield was measured at 7/sup 0/, 54/sup 0/ and 72/sup 0/ to the beam direction. Dose equivalent estimates were made in adjoining areas by using moderated BF/sub 3/ proportional counters and carbon and aluminum activation detectors. Data are presented and radiation protection aspects discussed. 9 refs., 4 figs., 2 tabs.
