The stopping of deuterons in lithium

Nucl Eng Des/Fusion. 1985;2:337-54. doi: 10.1016/0167-899x(85)90022-9.


The interaction of 52 MeV deuterons with lithium was investigated, in view of the optimization of a lithium target for an intense neutron source based on the d-Li stripping reaction. The experimental results are compared with theoretical calculations obtained from an updated version of the Bragg code. This code describes in detail the interaction of charged particles with matter. Within the experimental uncertainties the theoretical results are well reproduced by the experiments.
