MEDAPP: Fission neutron beam for science, medicine, and industry

Christoph Genreith

Abstract


The instrument MEDAPP Medical Applications), operated by the Technische Universität München, and the respective irradiation position are located at the world-wide unique fast neutron beam tube SR10 to which a uranium converter is attached. Thus, the instrument is operated with unmoderated fission neutrons and can be used for a broad variety of applications. For selected tasks, an alternative use with thermal neutrons is possible.
