Controlled fusion

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Condensed Matter Nuclear Scienceby Akito Takahashi; Ken-ichiro Ota; Yasuhiro Iwamura

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 255.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Investigations of Field Dynamics in Laser Plasmas with Proton Imagingby Thomas Sokollik

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 129.00

    Laser-driven proton beams are in their infancy. This book describes a novel imaging technique - the proton streak camera - that the author first used to measure both the spatial and temporal evolution of ultra-strong electrical fields in laser-driven plasmas. more...

  • 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...

  • A Piece of the Sunby Teddy Wayne

    Gerald Duckworth & Co 2013; US$ 8.74

    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...
