Abstract content <br> &nbsp; (Max 300 words)

The accelerator facility at Necsa is in the process of investigating the usage of a solid 11B target for the RFQ accelerator, this target producing a range of fast neutrons from 1 MeV - 14 MeV as well as two distinct gamma rays (4.43 MeV and 15.11 MeV) for Dual Discrete Gamma Radiography. The target is planned to be mounted onto a graphite layer, therefore there is a need to review the gamma spectrum from 12 C , this being done at the Van der Graaff (terminal potential of 4MV) with some results discussed here. The 11B target together with a developing pulsed beam system will enable the capability of conducting both fast neutron resonance radiography and time of flight studies, the philosophy of this being aligned with PTB in Germany.
