Keywords:Boron Neutron Capture Therapy, Water film jet, Stability, Lithium target

For developmet of plane jet of liquid lithium for accelerator-based Boron Neutron Capture therapy, shape of nozzle inlet for making stable jet was considered. The nozzle with 1 mm curvature radius at the inlet and the step which is 0.2 mm from the inlet in horizontal and 0.3 mm in vertical made the jet stable.
