Abstract

This paper presents results of the application Monte Carlo method to analyze data from the interaction of deuteron beams with metallic targets saturated with deuterium. The SRIM software was used to generate energy spectrum of ions passing the target. These spectra were used to calculate the neutron yields from dd reactions in energy range 7-12 keV of incident deuteron beams. The calculated outputs were compared with the experimental data for the determination of the electron screening potential for dd reactions. The calculations were performed using two different values of the beam energy spread (FWHM) equal 1% and 16%. It was shown that plasma beams with a relatively high spread (16%) were almost as good a tool as the traditional accelerator with mono-energy beam related to the study of the reaction within an ultra-low energy region.
