Time spectra of neutron and sonoluminescence emissions during cavitation experiments in chilled deuterated acetone were discussed. It was observed that the neutron and sonoluminescence emissions were time correlated. It was found that the neutron output during cavitation in chilled deuterated acetone was in the range between ∼1×105 n/s and ∼4×10 5 n/s. It was shown that the data on measurements of tritium production implied a neutron emission rate due to D-D fusion .
