Project Details


The AUSTRON is a proposal to create an international research centre based on a pulsed neutron spallation source in Central Europe. We present the concept of the target design for this spallation source.

To be an attractive facility, AUSTRON must offer a performance equal to, or better than, the ISIS facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, which is considered as the present world leader in this field. The AUSTRON source will be driven by an accelerator complex generating a 1.6 GeV proton beam pulsed at 25 Hz and delivering an average beam power of 205 kW at the target. An upgrade of the accelerator doubling the frequency and the average beam power is feasible.
