Our rapidly industrialising world has an insatiable hunger for energy, and conventional sources are struggling to meet demand. Oil is running out, coal is damaging our climate, many nations are abandoning nuclear, yet solar, wind and water will never be a complete replacement. The solution, says Daniel Clery in this deeply researched and revelatory... more...

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...

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...

Laser-driven proton beams are still in their infancy but already have some outstanding attributes compared to those produced in conventional accelerators. One such attribute is the typically low beam emittance. This allows excellent resolution in imaging applications like proton radiography. This thesis describes a novel imaging technique - the proton... more...

This is a comprehensive book which describes the three essential parts of what is known as 'Inertial Confinement Fusion': the way thermonuclear burn takes place in non-magnetized, magnetized and fusion-fission hybrid assemblies; the pulse power ignition technology (nuclear, electrical, optical and chemical); and, the applications of inertial... more...

One of the most important discoveries of this century — cold fusion — was summarily rejected by science and the media before sufficient evidence had been accumulated to make a rational judgment possible. Enough evidence is now available to show that this rejection was wrong and that the discovery of a new source of clean energy may help... more...

Recent progress in the emerging field of condensed matter nuclear science (CMNS) is presented as a combination of basic nuclear science, energy, nanomaterials science, electro-chemistry and nuclear physics. Key and selected papers from an important conference in this exciting area provide the latest advances in CMNS studies. Current results from cold... more...

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...
