Efficient neutron production from sub-nanosecond laser pulse accelerating deuterons
(AIP Publishing, 2015)
Neutron-producing experiments have been carried out on the Prague Asterix Laser System. At the fundamental wavelength of 1.315 μm, the laser pulse of a 600 J energy and 300 ps duration was focused on a thick deuterated-p ...
Efficient Neutron Production from a Novel Configuration of Deuterium Gas-Puff Z-Pinch
(American Physical Society, 2014)
A novel configuration of a deuterium z pinch has been used to generate fusion neutrons. Injecting an outer hollow cylindrical plasma shell around an inner deuterium gas puff, neutron yields from DD reactions reached Y-n = ...
Deuterium z-pinch as a powerful source of multi-MeV ions and neutrons for advanced
(AIP Publishing, 2016)
A novel configuration of a deuterium z-pinch has been used to generate a nanosecond pulse of fast ions and neutrons. At a 3 MA current, the peak neutron yield of (3.6 ± 0.5) × 1012 was emitted within 20 ns implying the ...
