China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS)
The China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS), operated by the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), has been built at Dongguan city in China.
CSNS mainly consists of an H-linac, a proton rapid cycling synchrotron, a target station and three spectrometers. It is designed to accelerate proton beam pulses to 1.6 GeV energy at 25 Hz repetition rate, striking a solid metal target to produce spallation neutrons. The accelerator is designed to deliver a beam power of 100 kW with the upgrade capability to 500 kW by raising the linac output energy and increasing the beam intensity.
