Deals with the specific contact between the fourth state of matter, that is, plasma, and the first state of matter, that is, a solid wall, in controlled fusion experiments. This work also includes a comprehensive analysis of the main processes of plasma-surface interaction together with an assessment of the critical questions. more...

Unraveling the role of fusion in the universe has taken almost a century since Einstein's proof of the equivalence of energy and matter in 1905. The discovery that fusion reactions are responsible for the building of the light elements in the "Big Bang" and the subsequent development of the heavier elements in the stars and in exploding supernovae... 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...

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...

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...

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...

With his knack for translating science into understandable, anecdotal prose and his trademark dry humor, award-winning science writer Charles Seife presents the first narrative account of the history of fusion for general readers in more than a decade. Tracing the story from its beginning into the twenty-first century, Sun in a Bottle reveals fusion's... more...
