Controlled fusion

  • The Physics of Inertial Fusionby Stefano Atzeni; Jürgen Meyer-ter-Vehn

    Clarendon Press 2004; US$ 89.99

    This book is on inertial confinement fusion, an alternative way to produce electrical power from hydrogen fuel by using powerful lasers or particle beams. Two huge laser facilities are presently under construction to show that this method works. It involves the compression of tiny amounts (micrograms) of fuel to thousand times solid density and pressures... more...

  • The Beta Equilibrium, stability, and Transport codesby Frances Bauer

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    The Beta Equilibrium, Stability, and Transport Codes: Application to the Design of Stellarators covers the application of the BETA computer codes to the Heliotron E plasma confinement experiment. This book is the outgrowth of a collaboration between the Courant Institute at New York University and the Plasma Physics Laboratory at Kyoto University.... more...

  • Plasma Physics and Fusion Energyby Jeffrey P. Freidberg

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 84.00

    Graduate textbook on plasma physics for courses in applied physics and nuclear engineering. more...

  • Condensed Matter Nuclear Scienceby Peter L. Hagelstein; Scott R. Chubb

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 444.00

    This volume is a collection of papers from the Tenth International Conference on Cold Fusion attended by most of the important groups around the world that are active in the field. New results are presented in the area of excess heat production, including observations of excess heat, correlation of excess heat and helium, and laser stimulation of excess... more...

  • Edward Teller Lecturesby Heinrich Hora; George H Miley

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 175.00

    How to achieve unlimited, safe, clean and low-cost energy by laser- or beam-driven inertial nuclear fusion has preoccupied all winners of the Edward Teller Medal since its inception in 1991. This book presents their findings, meeting discussions, and personal insights from Edward Teller himself. Expect discussion of important advances anticipated in... more...

  • Frontiers in Fusion Researchby Mitsuru Kikuchi

    Springer London 2011; US$ 209.00

    A systematic overview of the latest physical principles of fusion and plasma confinement is presented in this book. It is primarily devoted to the principle of magnetic plasma confinement that has been systematized through 50 years of fusion research. more...

  • The Science of the Cold Fusion Phenomenonby Hideo Kozima

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 225.00

    Broken up in to three sections, this book gives a unified explanation of all the significant data on the Cold Fusion Phenomena to date. It presents a history of the Cold Fusion Phenomenon (CFP), gives the fundamental experimental results of the CFP and presents a quantum mechanical treatment of physical problems associated with cold fusion. * Overviews... more...

  • Plasma-Material Interaction in Controlled Fusionby Dirk Naujoks

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 209.00

    Plasma-Material Interaction in Controlled Fusion deals with the specific contact between the fourth state of matter, i.e. plasma, and the first state of matter, i.e. a solid wall, in controlled fusion experiments. A comprehensive analysis of the main processes of plasma-surface interaction is given together with an assessment of the most critical... more...

  • An Introduction to Inertial Confinement Fusionby Susanne Pfalzner

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 194.95

    Newcomers to the field of inertial confinement fusion (ICF) often have difficulty establishing a clear picture of the overall field. The reason for this is because, while there are many books devoted to special topics within the field, there is none that provides an overview of the field as a whole. An Introduction to Inertial Confinement Fusion fills... more...

  • Fun in Fusion Researchby John Sheffield

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 69.95

    This book discusses the fun side of the quest to develop fusion energy-a modern equivalent of the hunt for the Holy Grail. After more than 70 years of research, despite great progress, the goal has not been realized. Do you have to be crazy to love quests like this? Not really, but you do have to have an unshakeable optimism. Through humorous anecdotes,... more...
