Plasma-Jet driven Magneto-Inertial Fusion (PJMIF)

Feasible, practical and relatively cheap nuclear fusion concept is one of science’s holy grails and the search has been on for more than five decades now. It represents one of the ultimate sources of energy for both terrestrial and space practices. There are dozens of research projects, involving more than twenty different approaches for nuclear fusion, but no fusion with gain has been achieved yet. I will hereby try to go through some of the main fusion ideas and introduce you to a fusion concept named Plasma-Jet driven Magneto-Inertial Fusion (PJMIF). (more…)
