Simultaneous catalytic regime of tritium and helium-3 in D-D fusion without external breeding
A catalytic regime of tritium and helium-3 in deuterium-deuterium fusion, including ion-electron collisions, mechanical expansion, bremsstrahlung radiation, inverse Compton scattering losses and
Study of the ignition requirements and burn characteristics of DT x pellets for Inertial Confinement Fusion
The ignition temperature of a thermonuclear fusion reaction is found to decrease on adding a small amount of tritium (x ~ 0.0112) to deuterium fusion pellet. In this paper the catalytic regime for
Energy Leakage Probability Effect on Ignition Condition in AN Inertial Confinement Fusion Plasma
For a weak to moderately coupled plasma, the charged particle stopping power dE/dx was recently calculated from first principles in Ref. 1 using the method of dimensional continuation.2 While the
Energy deposition of charged particles and neutrons in an inertial confinement fusion plasma
The energy leakage probability of charged particles from an ICF pellet has been estimated earlier using a small angle binary collision approximation for Coulomb scattering from electrons and ions.
Thermonuclear burn of DT and DD fuels using three-temperature model: Non-equilibrium effects
Conditions for thermonuclear ignition are determined by three parameters: fuel density, temperature and hot-spot size. A simple three temperature model is developed to calculate the critical burn-up
The Effect of Energy Leakage Probability on Burn Propagation in an Optically Thick Fusion Plasma
In an optically thick plasma, the mean free path of bremsstrahlung photons is smaller than the plasma radius, and radiation can be treated as a photon gas in thermal equilibrium. In these conditions,
