Small neutron generators like the Valvo type 18600 are using the deuterium (2H) - tritium (3H) reaction as the most common accelerator based (as opposed to isotopic) neutron sources. Neutrons are produced by creating deuterium ions and accelerating these ions into a tritium or deuterium target. The D-D reaction is used only in special circumstances because the neutron yield from the D-T reaction is ~100 times higher. The tube 18600 is listed in "Valvo-Taschenbuch" from 1966 on page 302 and in later editions where also other types emerge like the 18601 and 18602.
Also Philips and other Philips owned marks.
