A transport beam line from the 70 MeV cyclotron to the beryllium target inside the reactor core has been designed using the PSI Graphic TRANSPORT code. The obtained beam spot at the end of the transport line is 1.5cm in radius with an angular divergence of 0.9mrad, in agreement with the target design. The chromatic behavior of the proposed layout, which has been evaluated and resulted in a Δp/p = ±0.15%, does not introduce significant changes of the beam spot size on the target.
