LANSCE short-pulse spallation source target upgrade

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A project to upgrade the short-pulse spallation source target at the Los Alamos Neutron Scattering Center (LANSCE) is in progress. This upgrade will reduce the target change out time from about a year to about three weeks and permit the proton beam current to be raised to 200 {mu}A. The project includes a new target-moderator-reflector system, a new suite of moderators for four new flight paths, improved auxiliary systems, remote handling capability, and a new crane and service building. The project has also supported calculations and experiments for target neutronics, rod-target thermo-hydraulics, and corrosion-related measurements in a proton beam. The ... continued below

The final engineering design is now complete and the project has begun fabrication and procurement. Installation will begin in the fall of this year.
