    A speculative afterthought - The above results seem to resemble those in the following preprints.

    "X-ray and neutron emissions by shock waves"

    Refs[21-26] of the paper describe the experimental procedure.
    I assume that a magnetic rail gun would provide the cleanest result.
    For anyone interested, here are a couple of more references by the authors --
