Abstract

We have studied the properties of spallation neutrons produced by simulation of proton beams on simple lead targets. This is relevant for ADSR systems and other neutron sources. We provide a detailed description of the overall numbers of neutrons, their energy spectra, and spatial and angular distributions for proton energies between 100 and 1400 MeV, and find that these can be parametrised by simple forms.
