Phoenix Nuclear Labs Meets Neutron Production Milestone

May 1st, 2013 | Filed under: Press Release

Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) announced today that it reached a major technical milestone by successfully producing 3×1011 neutrons per second with the deuterium-deuterium fusion reaction. Meeting this milestone was a major step in validating PNL’s gas target neutron generator as the technology that will drive the subcritical assemblies under development by SHINE Medical Technologies (SHINE) for the production of the medical isotope molybdenum-99 (Mo-99).
