Neutron Generators


Phoenix’s neutron generator technology utilizes the deuterium-deuterium (DD) and deuterium-tritium (DT) nuclear fusion reactions to generate neutrons. 

Phoenix’s solution utilizes a microwave ion source and a gaseous deuterium, tritium, or mixed species target, which allows for a significantly increased neutron yield, as well as longer target and source lifetimes for up to several years.  Positively charged deuterium ions are extracted from the source and accelerated to 300 kV by a direct-inject, CW accelerator. The beam is then focused by a magnetic solenoid and transported down a beam line until it impinges upon a target of deuterium and/or tritium, where nuclear fusion occurs and then neutrons are produced.
