Abstract

There are briefly considered physical and medical aspects contemporary development of Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) system. Choice of accelerator for neutron produce is discussed. Three of accelerator types are compared: Electrostatic accelerator, compact cyclotron and RFQ with working frequency of P- diapason. A few factors determine choice: providing of required neutron flux, compactness of accelerator and whole BNCT system, economical power consumption. Our choice is radio-frequency quadrupole. Two of RFQ variants are considered: Compact RFQ and universal one, which has possibility to accelerate two of types particles (proton and deuteron) and to use two of types targets (Lithium and Beryllium) for neutron produce.
