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...
- Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 60.95
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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
