Adoptable beam of neutrons enables investigating neutron interaction with matter and extends its applications. Neutrons from a low energy Sb-Be source are accelerated to the desired energies by collision with high energy protons from a plasma focus device. Protons pass through a set of magnetic lenses and converged to a small point where the neutron source is located. Proton density is increased by narrowing the beam with a charge funnel. From a practical point of view, the source geometry of neutron is a half-cone, which enhances the number of forward peaked neutrons after collision with proton.
