Description

SLRI Beam Test Facility (SLRI-BTF) has been constructed in order to increase usage of the Siam Photon Source injector. SLRI-BTF aims to provide electron test beams for calibration and testing of high-energy particle detectors and diagnostic instrumentations. The test-beam energy varies from 40 MeV to 1.2 GeV with adjustable intensity from a few to several millions of electrons per repetition rate. Since the test-beam energy is sufficiently large, the electron test beam can be used to produce photo-neutrons resulted from collision of high-energy electrons to metal targets. Similar to the electron test beams, this neutron source will be utilized for calibration and testing of neutron detectors and instrumentations. In this work, the neutron production and its angular dependence has been investigated using simulation. The result based on this study will be used to determine the possibility to service neutron source for user in the future.
