The burn of deuterium-deuterium (DD) or deuterium-tritium (DT) fuel performed on inertial confinement fusion experiments provides neutrons, charged particles and photons in various energy. Studies on these particle emissions are of interest since they carry crucial information on experimental conditions required to achieve ignition. Neutron emissions give access to characteristics like the fusion yield, burn and bang times, fuel temperature, core dynamic and areal densities (<p.R>) of the capsule and the fuel. Each of these measurements requires specific and challenging diagnostic.
