Actually, I didn't do any of those things. As Jones said, there is no duration
specified, however IIRC there is a duration specified in a diagram on the
Saffire web site. Perhaps you could check, and give us an indication of how much
energy was in the pulse? (BTW the H+D reaction yields 5.49 MeV, not 3 MeV.)
Though also possible, D+D reactions are less likely than H+D reactions due to
the atomic ratio, unless there is some mechanism that is concentrating the D in
one layer. Given that it's about twice as heavy as H this is not impossible.
