What are  the regulations regarding an electronic neutron generator?  
Something  like a D-D fusion type.  It's possible to make one in a reasonably 
well  equipped lab, so if someone did, what licensing and use regulations would 
Regulations on an x-ray machine are fairly clear (and they're   MUCH more 
common! - both the machines, and regs!).

generator, is there anything  special someone would have to do if they made a D-D 
neutron  generator?

And yes, I realize that if it was done in a DOE facility  their rules would 

Thanks in advance!
