Abstract

Collective acceleration of protons and deuterons is compared in the same geometry of a Luce diode with a polyethylene anode at an accelerating diode voltage of 250 kV, current and pulse duration of relativistic electrons up to 30 kA and 90 ns, respectively. The accelerated ions were intercepted by B4C, BN, and AlN wafers, in which analytical radionuclides were produced according to the nuclear reactions 10B(p, α)7Be,12C(p, γ)13N, 10B(d, n)11C, 12C(d, n)13N, 14N(d, n)15О, and 27Al(d, p)28Al. It was found that with the same geometry of the Luce diode, protons and deuterons of the main group had equal speeds within the measurement error, and the average number of deuterons accelerated in one pulse was, on average, 3 times less than the number of accelerated protons.
