Neutron Interactions and Applications
MetadataShow full item record
Comprehensive treatment of neutron interactions in condensed matter at energies from thermal to MeV, focusing on aspects most relevant to radiation therapy, industrial imaging, and materials research applications. Comparative assessment of accelerator and reactor sources, cross sections for capture and charged particle emission, theory of elastic scattering and thermalization, optics and small-angle scattering, static and dynamic structure factors, transport calculations and particle simulations. Term paper and presentation required.
