A pulsed neutron source facility will be constructed at Kyoto University, where the accelerated 3.5 MeV proton beam will bombard a Li or Be target to generate neutrons. The average current, the pulse width and the typical repetition rate are 100 μA, 100 μs and 70 Hz, respectively. The purposes of the system are neutron imaging, material science, fundamental physics, etc. This kind of compact facility, which can be distributed at modest cost, will help to incubate new ideas and promote growth of neutron science worldwide. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
