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.

High Yield Neutron Generator

Phoenix's High Yield Neutron Generator the highest yielding deuterium-deuterium (DD) compact neutron generator in the world.

 

Compact Neutron Generator

Smaller footprint, huge output. Phoenix’s compact, intermediate yield deuterium-deuterium (DD) neutron generator is smaller but still offers significant neutron yield and a long target lifetime.
