homemade fusor (nuclear fusion reactor) - neutron and x-ray radiation, silver activation

nucleosynthesis with a farnsworth-hirsch-fusor - a homemade nuclear fusion reactor that, in this case, fuses deuterium (H-2) atoms.
the result is an intense output of x-radiation - and neutron radiation, which allows for activation of e.g. silver!
in mentioned process, nuclear transmutation occurs by silver atoms capturing neutrons released by the fusion reaction - thus, turning into radioactive isotopes of silver which will then beta-decay into cadmium atoms.
