Abstract:

The feasibility of using an electron-beam-triggered thermonuclear explosion to produce neutron and gamma-ray fluxes of interest for studies of neutron pumped gamma lasers and gamma-ray pumped HF and Xe lasers is analyzed. An experimental scheme is proposed which seems to satisfy all the requirements for use of a high energy electron beam. Modified author abstract
