Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PRODUCING NEUTRONS AND OTHER RADIATIONS

Abstract

A neutron source is designed which comprises a toroidal chamber contained deuterium or tritium gas, means for ionizing said gas, primary coils located around said chamber for inducing an electrical current in said gas having a value high enough to produce a pinch effect, and electrical coil nmeans for preventing the outward radial drift of the pinched discharge current. (AEC)
