CERN 200 and 400 GeV/c protons activation experiments (1983)

 1. Name of Experiment:
    Measurements of the dose and hadron yield from copper targets in 200 GeV/c and
    400 GeV/c extracted proton beams (1983)

 2. Purpose and Phenomena Tested:
    Standard activation and dosimetric techniques were used to measure the angular
    variation of hadron flux density and absorbed dose around copper targets irradiated
    by high-energy protons. The reports include the compilation of the results of the
    measurements obtained during four irradiations at proton energies between 195 and
    400 GeV.

    Compiler of data for Sinbad: to be carried out

 4. Note:
    Two reports on the experiments were kindly contributed by Alberto Fasso' and Markus Brugger.
    The compilation and review are still to be carried out. Contributions would be highly appreciated.
