2018-085 – Switchable Passive Neutron Source

Researchers at Kansas State University have developed a micro-fabricated neutron emitting devicethat uses a miniature shutter mechanism to allow the neutron source to be turned on and off asneeded. KSU’s neutron generator uses passive material (i.e. no accelerator) and is turned on and offby simply moving microscopic shutters by a very small distance. Thus, it can be turned on and offwith no power, or it can be cycled or pulsed with very minimal power to replicate the output oftraditional machine sources.
