Solid deuterium pellet injection with a two‐stage pneumatic gun
Recent results on injection of D2 pellets, using an improved light gas gun, are reported. In order to overcome the limits imposed by the low mechanical strength of solid hydrogen, a double‐piston gunExpand

LOADING OF H ( D ) IN A PD LATTICE
1 G. Preparata [1] has stressed that when x becomes larger than a critical threshold, deuterons enter into a coherent oscillatory state. Deuterons while in the β-phase (x<0.7 at room temperature),Expand

The Compact, Four Barrel High Speed Pellet Injector For The Ignitor Experiment
Ignitor is a compact, high field tokamak (R0 = 1.32 m, BT = 13 T) designed to attain ignition in high density, relatively low temperature plasmas (ne0 = ni0 = 1021 m-3, Te0 = Ti0 = 11 keV), by OhmicExpand
