D(d,p)T fusion induced by heavy-ion irradiation of TiD1.7


As a test of the linear cascade model for ion-solid interaction, Xe and Ar ion irradiation at energies of 140–600 keV is used to induce D+D fusion in TiD1.7. The fusion yield is measured by monitoring the 3.02-MeV protons from the D(d,p)T reaction. A linear binary-collision cascade model predicts fusion yields that are in excellent agreement with the measured yields for all cases studied.
