Color images illustrate optimal radiation dose distributions, dose delivery with photon and light ion beams, treatment outcomes, scanned beam systems, and optimization of the scanning pattern.
Therefore, the excitation of the ASW by light ion beam can be much more efficient than one by the beam with the ions of the same kind.
In the paper, we investigate the possibility of excitation of ion XASW with negative azimuthal mode number in strongly magnetized plasma by annular beam of light ions. Numerical calculations confirm that the resonance interaction of the beam with this type of surface waves can be realized in sufficiently strong external magnetic field.
Sandia is the main laboratory in the United States concentrating on the light ion approach.
Light ions take a short time to reach the detector and heavier ions take longer.
The United States is considering five driver options: heavy ions, KrF (krypton-fluoride) lasers, diode-pumped solid-state lasers, z-pinch, and light ions. Each driver option offers a choice of chamber options, Olson said.
