Title: Estimation of d-2 H Breakup Neutron Energy Distributions From d-3 He

Abstract

A method is described to estimate deuteron-on-deuteron breakup neutron distributions at 0° using deuterium bombardment of 3He. Break-up neutron distributions are modeled with the product of a Fermi-Dirac distribution and a cumulative logistic distribution function. Four measured break-up neutron distributions from 6.15- to 12.0-MeV deuterons on 3He are compared with thirteen measured distributions from 6.83- to 11.03-MeV deuterons on deuterium. Model pararmeters that describe d-3He neutron distributions are used to estimate neutron distributions from 6- to 12-MeV deuterons on deuterium.
