Fusion Science and Technology / Volume 59 / Number 1T / January 2011 / Pages 17-22

The paper reviews the characteristic features of a volumetric neutron source based on the gas dynamic trap and the results of current experiments at GDT device on modeling of the operational regimes of the neutron source. Some limiting factors in the current experiments and possible next steps towards more comprehensive modeling in future experimental device are discussed. Also discussed are the recent findings in the GOL-3 experiment and their consequences for the next step experimental device.
