Abstract

A simple 1D algorithm for a spallation target profile optimization is presented. The profile efficacy is tested considering different real particle beams profiles impinging on the target. The results are commented in terms of power non-homogeneity for unit length for different beam/profile choices, showing a non-trivial parameters selection. In details, target shaping optimization is possible knowing the beam parameters with a large benefit for surface power homogeneity, but results of the simulations show that a small increase of the beam dimension, or a beam shift with respect to the assumed one, could rapidly erase the advantages. © 2014, Società Italiana di Fisica and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
