Abstract

Utilization of a sealed tube neutron generator requires the knowledge of the lateral flux density distribution and the mean energy of primary neutrons near to the target. The ion composition of the incident beam is related to the operating conditions of a generator. These parameters have been determined for a KAMAN A-711 sealed tube machine by the foil activation method using different energy and fluence monitor reactions. An analytical expression is also given for the calculation of the relative flux density for a typical geometry.
