Re: Creating a neutron source

Would the reaction of pair production at 1.022 MeV produce enough protons for the probability of fusing to happen.
Some people have talked about SRIM would that be-able to predict it.

Cheers for you patients

Re: Creating a neutron source

<t>Thanks for the links. Firing a electron at a heavy metal will cause back scatting release a xray not a isotope which needs a neutron. Ionizing hydrogen with a voltage will make a positive ion, if that's accelerated at 18kev into another hydrogen atom it might make one because of the proton or neu...

Re: Creating a neutron source

Thanks that cleared it up abit,Even if you hit it with alot of energy from a electron it won't create the isotope?.

If you have 3H isotope of 0.01861MeV, if you hit 2H with 18kev with proton ,gamma ray or electron(?) will it turn into 3H, or do you need like 10MeV

Re: Creating a neutron source

<t>Its just a hobby, generator power hopefully <br/> <br/> I was going to use a penning trap with a neutron source that would fire into a Ca isotope which is double beta decay, with a hydrogen main source. The idea was to get a type of chain reaction with two electrons coming off for the price of on...

Re: Creating a neutron source

Was only thinking about 181W, because of the low MeV.

Is there anyway to make isotopes with electron or proton of less than 1.022MeV at standed atmosphere

Creating a neutron source

<t>Hi would the below picture work for a neutron source using electron capture, if it was at atmosphere pressure and over 188kv for tungsten(blue)?<br/> What would be the mean free path of a neutron at atmosphere pressure and 100kev.<br/> <br/> Just guessing here ,electron capture is p + e → n + νe ...
