The compact pulsed neutron source facility can play an important role in the research, education, user training, and development of the advanced neutron scattering instruments. The materials for the target, moderator, reflector (TMR) and their configurations must be optimized to get the optimal yield of neutrons with energy in the range of 1 meV to eV order which depends on the proton energy and its nuclear reaction. Several kinds of materials of the TMR, their configurations, and their dimensions are investigated by the Monte Carlo simulation and optimized for developing the compact pulsed neutron source. The results would contribute to the construction of the Compact Pulsed Hadron Source (CPHS) of Tsinghua University.
