Abstract

The optimum focusing conditions of the Hanyang University Plasma Focus (HUPF) device have been obtained by determining maximum power input to the focusing plasma while changing pressure at one fixed electrode, which leads to the maximum neutron generation. Six electrodes of different lengths have been used according to the snow-plow model to determine the conditions for the maximum neutron production of the HUPF device, namely 1.6 × 108 (n/shot) with 17 cm electrode length and a 3.4 Torr pressure.
