A new experimental approach in the study of strong interactions between light nuclei at ultralow energies (100 eV - 3 keV) is proposed. The method is based on the use of nanosecond ion beams generated by plasma linear. This approach will allow one to obtain information about characteristics of nuclear reactions in the indicated energy region. The use of classical accelerators is difficult because according to theoretical calculations the range of the cross section values for the studied reactions in this energy region is 10-43 - 10-32 cm2. In this paper, the method of measurement of the cross section is described and the first result of experiment on measurement of the (dd) reaction cross section at deuteron collision energies 220 eV is presented.
