Abstract

Experiments in a small and fast plasma focus device with temporal polarity inversion of the electrodes have been carried out. In this way the beam target mechanism for neutron production has been suppressed, and the operational conditions in which the neutron emission is due only to thermonuclear mechanism have been found.
