Scientific Description
The laboratory of the Van de Graaff accelerator is devoted to basic research in experimental low-energy nuclear physics and applications such as calibration and testing of radiation detectors and nuclear analytical methods for materials analysis. The laboratory belongs to the Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics (UTEF) of the Czech Technical University (CTU) in Prague. The facility serves as source of low-energy light ions and as a source of tunable monochromatic fast neutrons.Continuous beams are provided as follows. Light ions can be also provided in low intensity (down to 10^3/cm^2/s). Neutrons of discrete energy (accuracy few %) are provided in the indicated ranges. The neutron sources are calibrated and monitored with active devices (liquid scintillator NE 213, 3He Bonner sphere) with online display and evaluation.
