    Abstract

    Lithium 8 is a short lived beta emitter producing a high
    energy anti-neutrino,which is very suitable formaking several
    measurements of fundamental quantities. It is proposed
    to produce Lithium 8 with a commercially available
    60 MeV cyclotron using protons or alpha particles on a
    Beryllium 9 target. We have used the GEANT4 program
    to model these processes, and calculate the anti-neutrino
    fluxes that could be obtained in a practical system. We also
    calculate the production of undesirable contaminants such
    as Boron 8, and show that these can be reduced to a very
    low level.
