Abstract: Recent developnrents in neutron source design were largely directed towards new applications in radiotherapy, fusion technology and solid state physics. In these fields 14 MeV T(d,n).,'deuteron break-up and spallation neutron sources appear to be the most promising types for providing high source strengths. The main properties of such sources are briefly described with regard to total neutron intensities and angular-dependent spectra. Nuclear data related to the design, operation and application of the sources are discussed in four main areas of interest: Determination of source properties, source and accelerator shielding, safety and maintenance, and radiation damage and dosimetry. The nuclear data aspects including data needs, and availability of experimental data or model predictions are then discussed separately in some detail.. ‘. ’-2
