Development of a Novel Neutron Source for Next-Generation Neutron Scattering Experiments

Scott Anderson | 22-ERD-026

Executive Summary

We will design a novel, accelerator-driven, mono-energetic, intense, pulsed neutron source and conduct a proof-of-concept demonstration of its ability to support neutron scattering cross-section experimental measurements. This novel neutron source, including an ion accelerator design and pulse compression system, will address mission-critical nuclear data needs.
