RTNS-II: experience at 14-MeV source strengths between 1 x 10/sup 13/ and 4 x 10/sup 13/ n/s

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The design concepts, operational experience, and modifications of the two RTNS-II (Rotating Target Neutron Source-II) 14 MeV neutron sources are reviewed. The original design called for operation at a peak neutron source strength of 4 x 10/sup 13/ n/cm/sup 2/s. The facility was to operate at high plant factor and at an acceptable cost in both dose delivered to operating staff and releases to the environment. The possibilities of higher source strengths are discussed in light of the operating experience to date and of new technologies that may be applied to the problems of high flux generators of this type. ... continued below
