Fast neutron generator

The neutron generator is used for research on the neutron transport physics, including determination of the neutron parameters of geological media and investigation of the thermal neutron scattering in hydrogeonous media (hydrogen bound in molecules). A dependence of the thermal neutron parameters of materials on temperature is investigated on the set-up with a thermostatic chamber.

The d(t,n) α reaction on the tritium target is used to test properties of diamond detectors, particularly for spectrometric measurements of the alpha particles.
