Neutronic characterization and development of structural materials, neutron multiplier materials, tritium breeders are primarily important for fusion and hybrid reactors. In order to improve neutron economy, beryllium, lead, bismuth, zirconium are considered and used as neutron multiplier materials in fusion and hybrid reactor design. In this study, rms charge radii, neutron radii, mass radii and neutron skin thickness were calculated for 8–18Be isotopes nuclei. The neutron and proton density are calculated for Be isotopes. The results obtained were compared with the experimental and theoretical results of other researchers by using Hartree–Fock method with an effective interaction with Skyrme forces.
