Simultaneous Measurements of Neutrons and Energetic Protons from D-D and D-3He Fusion Reactions in an Inertial Electrostatic Confinement Device

Abstract

An inertial electrostatic confinement fusion (IECF) device can produce copious amount of neutrons and protons from D-D and D-<sup>3 </sup>He fusion reactions using D<sub>2</sub> and <sup>3</sup>He fuels. In order to measure the reaction rate of D-<sup>3</sup>He, a proton counting system is constructed using a silicon diode detector. When used with a… (More)
