Design of a neutron converter for fission studies at the IGISOL facility
2012 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The upgraded IGISOL facility with JYFLTRAP, at the accelerator laboratory of the University of Jyväskylä, has been supplied with a new cyclotron which will provide proton or deuteron beams of the order of 100 μA with up to 30 MeV energy. This makes it an ideal place for measurements of neutron-induced fission fragments from various actinides, in view of proposed future nuclear fuel cycles. In the present paper, some considerations for the design ofa neutron converter, based on simulations with the Monte Carlo codes MCNPX and FLUKA,are described.
