[en] Compact accelerator-driven neutron sources (CANS) based on low-energy neutron producing reactions, are being built across the world due to their increasing importance in basic and applied research. These facilities typically consist of a high current ECR ion source (IS) coupled to an RFQ along with the required beam transport elements, buncher and chopper systems to accelerate p, D and/or light ions up to an energy of 1-2 MeV/u. Experiments proposed/performed with these facilities include study of fast neutron induced fission of actinides and their prompt fission neutron/gamma energy spectra, and various aspects of nuclear astrophysics and nuclear spectroscopy. In addition, the neutron time of flight (TOF) will provide opportunities for neutron induced reaction measurements including fission and (n,Xn) reactions important for nuclear technology and applications such as fast neutron radiography, radioisotopes production etc.
