The possibility of using a plasma accelerator based on a pulsed Hall ion source to study the characteristics of pd, dd, d3He, 3He, and4He reactions in the astrophysical energy range (2-12 keV) has been considered. The preliminary experimental data on measurement of the astrophysical S factor for the dd reaction (dd → 3He + n (2.5 MeV)) at average deuteron collision energies Ecol = 4.5 and 4.95 keV and the deuteron beam energy spread FWHM = 18% are reported. The found value of the S factor is in agreement with the results of the experiments carried out by us previously using linear plasma in the inverse Z-pinch configuration.
