Abstract

High neutron output D-D neutron generators have been developed in the Plasma and Ion Source Technology Group in LBNL. A new facility has been build to enable testing and running these powerful generators. The co-axial neutron generator and the shielding/moderator structure are described in this presentation. Also presented are the first PGAA (Prompt Gamma Activation Analysis) and NAA (Neutron Activation Analysis) results measured in this neutron facility.
