CARIBU Beam Yields for Representative Species

Updated August, 2011


Typical CARIBU intensities for low-energy (stopped) and accelerated beams for the three 252Cf sources that will be used sequentially.
A more complete list ( for the 1 Ci source) can be found in the CARIBU proposal.
Expected 252Cf fission source strength:
    2.5 mCi ― summer 2010;              80 mCi ― fall 2010;              1 Ci ― early 2012;
