I am in the process of building a new, large chamber as the basis for a number of Fusor experiments. I plan on doing DT-DT fusion in the chamber at some point so shielding will be critical. Are there any objections to having the lead x-ray shield before the neutron shield, if the only thing the neutrons can hit are some organics (sono-tube formers and epoxies) after the lead, is there any difficulty with putting the moderator outside of the lead shield?
