This detailed and comprehensive reference to spallation –– from the foundations to the latest applications is the only work of its kind and is written by two internationally renowned researchers. Clearly divided into three parts, it begins with the basic principles, while the second part describes the proton–nucleus and proton–matter experiments so–called thin and thick target experiments in terms of secondary particle production as hadrons, pions, light and intermediate masses, isotope production, heating and energy deposition and materials damage. Many of the experiments are associated with studies, investigations and the construction of spallation neutron sources since 1975 with the emphasis on the most recent developments. The final part on technology and applications describes the various engineering problems associated with high intensity neutron spallation sources, ATW′s, the needed accelerator systems, material and neutron shielding issues, and advanced applications as proton therapy, hazards in space and high energy physics detector aspects.

A must–have for engineers and physicists working in or entering this field.
