A neutron target consists of a metallic substrate on which a thin layer of metal is deposited. This deposit is impregnated with deuterium or tritium or a mixture of both gases.
Targets are used in particle accelerators or neutron tubes to generate fast neutrons. The energy of neutrons depends on the reaction between an incident accelerated particle and tritium or deuterium trapped in the target.
