Abstract

The reactions of thermonuclear fusion in d+t, d+3He, d+d plasma at energies from several keV to 200 keV play a key role both in astrophysics problems (primordial nucleosynthesis, internal energy of stars) and in practical problem of the thermonuclear reactor development. Recent theoretical calculations show the essential influence of nuclear polarization on total cross section in these reactions. We present the experimental setup for d−d and d+3He differential cross section measurements at low energies.
