Abstract: 
The effect of varied concentrations of deuterium-krypton (D 2 –Kr) admixture on the neutron emission of a fast miniature plasma focusdevice was investigated. It was found that a judicious concentration of Kr in D 2 can significantly enhance the neutron yield. The maximum average neutron yield of (1±0.27)×10 4  n/shot for pure D 2 filling at 3 mbars was enhanced to (3.14±0.4)×10 5  n/shot with D 2 +2% Kr admixture operation, which represents a >30 -fold increase. More than an order of magnitude enhancement in the average neutron yield was observed over the broader operating range of 1–4 mbars for D 2 +2% Kr and D 2 +5% Kr admixtures.
