MAIORINO, José Rubens; SCIANI, Valdir and ANEFALOS, Sérgio. The utilization of a Cyclotron CV-28 in basic and applied nuclear research and in an experimental accelerator driven system zero power lead sub critical facility. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2004, vol.34, n.3a, pp. 788-791. ISSN 0103-9733. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97332004000500021.
This paper describes the IPEN Cyclotron CV-28, and its utilization in basic and applied physics and to drive a zero power lead Accelerator Driven System (ADS), as a milestone in a road map for a phrogram or network on the utilization of accelerators. Preliminary results for a conceptual lead sub critical cubic matrix with square or hexagonal metallic U pins driven by a proton beam (24 MeV; 50 mA) are shown. These results demonstrate the feasibility to use the CV-28 to drive the zero power ADS.
