Nuclear Fusion Perspectives

Physical conditions for D-T fusion reactions in hot plasmas are reviewed, showing the difference between inertial and magnetic confinement. The principles of muon-catalized fusion are given as an example of alternative approach. The main features of the tokamak, i.e. the magnetically-confined plasma configuration which is most investigated in reactor studies are described. ITER, a 500...
