Abstract

A new 72 MeV cyclotron is being built in Bratislava, Slovakia, which will have a dosimetry beam line with a possible extension for time-of-flight measurements. The combination of time of flight measurements with total absorption calorimetry offers an interesting potential route of providing an off-site beam energy calibration service. This report provides some literature review as well as Monte Carlo and heat transfer simulations to support a total absorption calorimeter design that could be established through collaboration between NPL and SMU.
