HIGH INTENSITY, PULSED, NEUTRON AND SLOW POSITRON SOURCES
in RF Superconductivity in the last decade opened the possibility of building
electron Linacs with high average intensity and high quality beams. This fact
in turn has revitalized the use of Linacs for the production of secondary
beams, which find many applications in Interdisciplinary Research. It is firmly
established that neutron and slow positron beams deriving from primary electron
beams constitute very useful investigation tools in Materials Science, complementary
to the Synchrotron Light and other microscopy techniques.
Such sources can be developed at the Beam Test Facility of the INFN-LNF,
and would integrate into the future Laboratory to be built in the Research
Area around the high-brilliance, X-FEL Facility.
The relevant scientific case is presented in this talk.
