|Abstract:||Intense burst of neutrons have been observed from a 5 kJ Mather type plasma focus device operated in a pressure of around 0.4 torr of deuterium medium in axial direction. The emitted neutrons, which are accompanied by a strong hard X-ray pulse, are found to be having energy up to 3.97 MeV in the axial direction of the device. The axial neutrons emitted from the device appear to be influenced by deuteron ions emitted in the same direction.|
