Comprehensive simulation studies on the target and the thermal and cold moderator-reflector assembly aiming for an optimization of the neutronic performance of laser- or compact accelerator-driven neutron sources are conducted in the scope of this thesis. The well-established Monte Carlo particle transport code MCNP is employed for the simulations.
