Optimization Problem On Modelling Of Boron Neutron Capture Therapy System

Yury Svistunov, Nikolai Edamenko, Vassily Gudkov, Irina Skudnova
The paper discusses dynamics of charged particles
and neutrons in boron neutron capture therapy system
(BNCT) as well as geometrical and physical optimization
of BNCT system elements. Our choice is BNCT
system with linear accelerator. BNCT track includes
ion injector, RFQ, DTL, neutron-producing target and
neutron moderator which provides an exit (last collimator)
flux of epithermal neutrons satisfied to International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) requirements. The following software tools IBSimu, LIDOS, COMSOL Multiphysics and PHITS were used for modelling BNCT system.
