  • In a synchrotron system, the protons are already bunched, and thus the pulse rate of the neutron beam is that of the repetition rate of the synchrotron. For an accumulator system, the pulse rate is determined by the extraction repetition rate of the accumulator. The author has conceptually designed a new system that uses a linear induction accelerator which can be operated for an average beam current up to a few mA with a repetition rate up to 100 Hz. The details of the design are given. 1 ref.
  • The design of a very high intensity proton linear accelerator and its associated facilities, that together form a complete meson factory is discussed. The accelerator will deliver a 1 ma (average) primary proton beam at an energy that is variable from 200 to 750 Mev. Polarized protons can also be accelerated. The intense primary proton beam, that can be fully extracted from the accelerator, will produce intense well-defined secondary beams of pions, muons, neutrons, and neutrinos. These secondary beams will be separated from the proton beam and transported to various experimental areas where adequate shielding, both flexible and fixed, ismore » provided. The sections of the report outline the justification, establish the feasibility, and estimate the cost of the installation. Tentative characteristics of the accelerator and the beams are presented, as are a number of studies that can be made with the assembly. 72 references. (auth)« less
  • Two companion papers at this meeting have introduced the subject of high intensity linacs for materials research and for radioactive waste transmutation; Prof. Kaneko's paper Intense Proton Accelerator,'' and my paper Accelerator-Based Intense Neutron Source for Materials R D.'' I will expand on those remarks to briefly outline some of the extensive work that has been done at Los Alamos toward those two application areas, plus a third --- the production of tritium in an accelerator-based facility (APT--Accelerator Production of Tritium). 1 ref., 11 figs.
  • Several accelerator-based intense neutron sources have been constructed or designed by various laboratories around the world. All of these facilities have a common scheme of a linac and synchrotron or accumulator ring, and the system produces the proton energy of 500 to 1000 MeV. The average beam currents range from a few mA to a few hundred mA. The protons are then used to generate high-flux neutrons by spallation out of heavy-metal targets. In a synchrotron system, the protons are already bunched, and thus the pulse rate of the neutron beam is that of the repetition rate of the synchrotron.more » For an accumulator system, the pulse rate is determined by the extraction repetition rate of the accumulator. We have conceptually designed a new system that uses a linear-induction accelerator which can be operated for an average beam current up to a few mA with a repetition rate up to 100 Hz.
