A windowless deuterium gas target has been constructed for either monoenergetic or white neutron production with a 900 KeV deuteron accelerator. The target is capable of operation at 100 mbar target pressure, and can admit a beam of 5 mm transverse extent. This target is further being modified by the inclusion of an intermittent valve arrangement to reduce the flow rates in the higher pressure stages. This valve should allow operation at up to 1000 mbar with low duty factor beams.
