Paper Abstract

The high energy particles were produced at the implosion of a tungsten wire array z-pinch onto a deuterated fiber at the S-300 device (4 MA, 700 kV, 100ns; RRC Kurchatov Institute, Moscow). The FWHM of the signal in spectral window 270 eV was 35-60 ns. The hard x-rays and neutrons with the FWHM (10-30) ns were produced during the soft x-ray maximum. The neutron yield from the D-D reaction reached 108 per shot. The mean energy of neutrons determined from time-of-flight analysis in the direction back to the anode, back to the cathode and side-on was in the range of (2.2-3.1) MeV and a time delay between neutron and hard x-rays maximum was in the range of (5-20)ns.
