A neutron generator is developed using 1-mm-diam spherical deuterated polystyrene targets on a rotating disk irradiated with an ultrahigh-intensity (>1018 W/cm2) diode-pumped laser. It consists of a rotating disk supplier, the targets, and a control system to irradiate the targets at 1.25 Hz. We adjusted the laser focus and position on the target to obtain the maximum neutron yield.
