Paper Abstract

The Japanese Spallation Neutron Source Facility is based on a 3 GeV, 1 MW, 25 Hz proton accelerator. It is apart of the High Intensity Proton Accelerator Project that is a joint project between the Tokai Establishment of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency and the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization. Neutronic optimization of the target-moderator-reflector assembly has been conducted assuming that the hydrogen is almost 100% para. Target station design is also underway, and five-year contracts will be made in November this year. Various device development programs, such as neutron-optical devices and detector systems, are also actively underway.
