Abstract Neutron generator targets are prepared by adsorption of elemental tritium on titanium or zirconium film on a copper backing. The stability of tritium on the target depends on the ability of Ti or Zr to form stable hydrides (tritides) resulting in chemical compounds rather than a mere physical absorption of the gas. This chemical stability presumably is also the cause of the tritium being released in particulate form. In the present study neutron generator targets were examined to determine the extent of particulate and gaseous emission of tritium. To determine whether deuteron bombardment of the targets may affect the tritium emissions, both new and used targets were studied.
