Paper Abstract

Recent developments in accelerator technology enable high current proton or deuteron beams production up to several milliamps, providing attractive sources for high neutron yield production. Be(p,n), Be(d,n) and 238U(X,n) reactions are discussed to produce high energy and thermal neutron yields. A 140 MeV, 2.5 mA extracted beam cyclotron is also proposed to feed a spallation neutron source, generating thermal neutron fluxes similar in intensity to those produced by nuclear reactors.
