Abstract

The 14 MeV neutron generator (FNG), in operation at the ENEA Frascati, produces up to 1.0 E11 neutrons per second and consists essentially of a deuterium-ion accelerator, a beam transport system and a target of titanium tritide, where neutrons are produced by the T(d,n)4He fusion reaction. An application of FNG in the frame of the research activity on controlled thermonuclear fusion research is briefly described.
