# HRRL Positron Rotating W Target

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The first version of a positron converter target will be designed to distribute the heat load by rotating the tungsten target.

# Properties of Tungsten

Melting Point =

Heat Capacity =

Heat loss due to radiation ( \sigma T^4)

# Tungsten Temperature as a function of heat load

The Tungsten heats up when an MeV energy electron impinges its surface. The imperfect vacuum inside the beam pipe does allow some radiative cooling.
