2011 (English)In: Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section B: Beam Interactions with Materials and Atoms, ISSN 0168-583X, E-ISSN 1872-9584, Vol. 269, no 8, 786-792 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The cross section for d+He-3 elastic scattering has been determined for the angular range 20-180 degrees (CM) for beam energies E-d = 0.05 to 11 MeV through combined use of experimental data, Coulomb scattering and extrapolations. The results are used to study, for instance, how the cross section is affected by nuclear interaction contributions. Implications of these results on the calculation of knock on effects in (He-3)D plasmas subjected to RF heating and their manifestations in the spectrum of the d + d fusion neutron emission are discussed.
