Abstract  

A comparison has been made between flux density distributions from massive and ring-shaped cylindrical isotopic neutron sources. A considerable gain in direct fast neutron flux is obtained for the latter geometry as well as a neat separation of fast and thermal flux density maxima along the axis of the source. Applications of these favourable properties are discussed.
