In this paper, design and construction of an IECF device which produces continuous neutron flux by the inertial electrostatic confinement fusion is reported. The device is a stainless steel cylindrical chamber of 60cm in height and 60cm in diameter. Inside the chamber two concentric stainless steel-made spherical electrodes of 13.5cm and 41cm in diameter were installed. At a deutron gas pressure in the range of 10-3 to 10-2 mbar a condensed plasma during the electric discharge at the central part of two sphere was observed due to the D-D fusion reaction. By using a neutron track detector and a GM counter covered by indium foil, a neutron flux of more than 106 n/S was recorded. In this respect, a neutron dose rate of 100μSv/h by the use of LB6411 neutron dosimeter was also detected.
