AUSTRON Target

Project: Research project

Description

The AUSTRON is a proposal to create an international research centre based on a pulsed neutron spallation source in
Central Europe. We present the concept of the target design for this spallation source.



To be an attractive facility, AUSTRON must offer
a performance equal to, or better than, the ISIS facility at
the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, which is considered
as the present world leader in this field. The
AUSTRON source will be driven by an accelerator complex
generating a 1.6 GeV proton beam pulsed at 25 Hz
and delivering an average beam power of 205 kW at the
target. An upgrade of the accelerator doubling the
frequency and the average beam power is feasible.
