Februrary 2015 DOE Report


A new neutron temporal diagnostic (P11-NTD), to be used for high-yield DT experiments, was activated on OMEGA. The instrument design is based on the current neutron temporal diagnostic (H5-NTD), which uses a fast rise time, commercially available plastic scintillator.

Measured neutron production rate (solid line) from the P11-NTD detector for a layered cryogenic DT target (shot 76607) with a yield of 3.5 × 1013 compared with 1-D predictions (dashed line) is shown here.
