    A massive deuterated polyethylene target was exposed to laser intensities of about 3 × 1016 W/cm2 employing the 3-TW Prague Asterix Laser System (PALS). We achieved a yield of 2 × 108 neutrons per laser shot. Average time-of-flight signals of scintillation detectors operated in current mode reveal broad energy spectra of fusion neutrons with dominating energy of about 2.45 MeV. The energy dependence of the neutron yield shows a consistency in results of nanosecond, picosecond and sub-picosecond experiments. Here we also show that ions emitted in the backward direction from the front target surface have a multi-peak energy spectrum, which is caused by burst emission mechanisms.
