NUANS (Nagoya University Accelerator-driven Neutron Source)

NUANS is an accelerator-driven neutron source primarily for the engineering study of the applicability of the neutron production with low energy protons to the boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) under the support of Yagami Co. Ltd.. The NUANS is being promoted by the Graduate School of Science and the Graduate School of Engineering under an intra-university collaboration framework "Nagoya University Science-Engineering Quantum Beam Intra-university Collaboration". The NUANS is being applied to the radiography of industrial products under the collaboration with Toyota Motor Corporation and the JST A-STEP project "Transmission Imaging with Compact Steady Source"".
