Tomsk Polytechnic University cyclotron as a source for neutron based cancer treatment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this paper we present our cyclotron based neutron source with average energy 6.3 MeV generated during the 13.6 MeV deuterons interactions with beryllium target, neutron field dosimetry, and dosimetry of attendant gamma fields. We also present application of our neutron source for cancer treatment.
