Title
(EN) A HADRON RADIATION INSTALLATION AND VERIFICATION METHOD
(FR) INSTALLATION À RAYONNEMENT DE HADRONS ET PROCÉDÉ DE VÉRIFICATION
Abstract
(EN) A hadron radiation installation adapted to subject a target to irradiation by a hadron radiation beam, said installation comprising: - a target support configured to support, preferably immobilize, a target; - a hadron radiation apparatus adapted to emit a hadron radiation beam along a beam axis to irradiate the target supported by the target support, said radiation beam penetrating into the target. The radiation apparatus has a control system at least comprising a beam penetration depth control allowing at least to control and vary the penetration depth of the radiation beam into the target. The installation has a radiation beam range sensor device adapted to determine the penetration depth of said radiation beam into the target, wherein said range sensor device comprises a gamma camera responsive to prompt gamma rays that are emitted while said hadron radiation beam penetrates into the target.
(FR) L'invention concerne une installation à rayonnement de hadrons conçue pour soumettre une cible à une irradiation par un faisceau de rayonnement de hadrons. Ladite installation comprend : un support de cible configuré pour supporter, de préférence immobiliser, une cible ; un appareil à rayonnement de hadrons conçu pour émettre un faisceau de rayonnement de hadrons le long d'un axe de faisceau pour irradier la cible portée par le support de cible, ledit faisceau de rayonnement pénétrant dans la cible. L'appareil à rayonnement possède un système de commande comprenant au moins une commande de profondeur de pénétration de faisceau permettant au moins la commande et la modification de la profondeur de pénétration du faisceau de rayonnement dans la cible. L'installation possède un dispositif capteur de portée de faisceau de rayonnement conçu pour déterminer la profondeur de pénétration dudit faisceau de rayonnement dans la cible, le dispositif capteur de portée comprenant une caméra gamma réactive aux rayons gamma instantanés qui sont émis pendant que le faisceau de rayonnement de hadrons pénètre dans la cible.
