    Title: Neutrons
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:
    • Neutrons ejected from a nucleus; 1 AMU; 0 Charge;
    • Free neutrons are unstable and decay by Beta emission (electron and proton separate) with T½ of approx. 13 min;
    • Range and LET are dependant on "speed": Slow (<10 KeV), "Thermal neutrons, QF=3; and Fast (>10 KeV), QF=10.
