Potential use of superconducting magnets for neutron therapy

Abstract

The results of a feasibility study on the use of superconducting magnets for neutron therapy devices will be reported. Two possibilities can be foreseen: - SC magnets used in the isocentric primary beam transport line. The advantage is to increase the energy of the particles which can be transported (up to 70 MeV for protons), compared to existing systems, with a lower weight. This solution could be used very quickly. - A SC isocentric cyclotron, working at on average field of 4.7 T for accelerating deuterons up to 30 MeV. The feasibility of such a machine is fairly established but technical developments are needed, mainly in view of the rotation and of the miniaturisation of the cyclotron.
