Keywords:Neutron generator , Inertial electrostatic confinement fusion (IEC), Interrogation of special nuclear materials detection

Our group is developing the ultra-compact neutron generator based on Inertial electrostatic confinement fusion for interrogation of special nuclear materials detection. The second prototype was fabricated from titanium (~35 kg weight) with 17 and 8 cm anode and cathode diameters, respectively. The achieved neutron yield was 7.5E7 n/s by applying 6.3 kW, which exceeds the system target (5E7 n/s). The status and achievements of neutron source will be presented.
