Paper Abstract

Compact ion linacs based on the radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ) can provide a wide range of neutron energies and fluxes. High current capability and flexibility of accelerated particles and output energies make these modern commercial accelerators well suited for providing either low energy neutrons for activation analysis, radiography and materials research, or high energy neutrons for cancer therapy and physics research. A description of these new compact ion linacs and a discussion of present and future applications using commercially available systems are presented here.
