For interpreting fusion rate measurements in present fusion experiments and predicting the fusion performance of future devices or of d-t experiments in present devices, it is important to know the fusion cross-sections as precisely as possible. Usually, it is not measured data that are used, but parametrizations of the cross-section as a function of the ion energy and parametrizations of the Maxwellian reactivity as a function of the ion-temperature. Since the publication of the… 
A Numerical Simulation for Fusion Reaction in Tokamak D-T Plasma
Abstract Fusion power, which generates electricity from the heat of fusion reactions, has the potential to solve the future energy crisis; hence, methods have been developed to study fusion reactions
Ab initio predictions for polarized deuterium-tritium thermonuclear fusion
First-principles predictions of the enhanced DT fusion rate are reported using chiral effective field theory and ab initio calculations, which accurately determine the enhanced fusion rate and angular distribution of the emitted neutron and 4He.
Ab initio predictions for polarized DT thermonuclear fusion
The fusion of deuterium (D) with tritium (T) is the most promising of the reactions that could power the thermonuclear reactors of the future. Already favored for its low activation energy and high
Studies on p+6Li Fusion Reaction using 3-Parameter Model
The 3-parameter model introduces 3 parameters (radius of a square nuclear potential well, the real part and the imaginary part of the nuclear potential depth) to describe the low energy behavior of

Deuterium fusion reactant energy spectra have been measured using a diagnostic that records the Doppler shift imparted to charged particle fusion products of the D(d,p)T reaction by the
Scrutiny on the Static Behavior of Physical Parameters for ITER90H-P Fusion Reactor Using Deuterium-Tritium and Deuterium-Helium Mixtures
In this work, the performance of fusion reactor ITER90H-P with considering D–T and D-3He fuels are examined by writing the dynamics equations on the system reactor. Therefore, we solve these
Studies on the Dynamics of D–T Fusion Reaction Based on the Relativistic Equilibrium Velocity Distribution
The Coulomb barrier is in general much higher than thermal energy. Nuclear fusion reactions occur only among few protons and nuclei (i.e., deuterium and tritium) with higher relative energies than

We investigate a possibility of using γ-ray-generating nuclear reactions for absolute measurements of bulk ion temperature in D– 3 He fusion plasma. Radiative capture processes between fuel ions and
Measurement of D(d,p)T Reaction Cross Sections in Sm Metal in Low Energy Region (10≤Ed≤20 keV)
To study the screening effect of nuclear reactions in metallic environments, the thick target yields, the cross sections and the experimental S(E) factors of the D(d,p)T reaction have been measured


Fusion reactivities for several beam and target ion distributions
Fusion reactivities 〈σv〉 in the mean ion energy range 0.1–200 keV have been calculated for the reactions: D(d,n), T(d,n), D(d, p), 3He(d, p) and T(t,2n); and for several different ion energy and
Cross Section and Angular Distribution of the D(d,p)T Reaction
The D(d,p)T reaction cross section has been measured by two methods using D2O ice targets. For Ed from 206 to 516 kev, a double-focusing magnetic spectrometer was used to obtain the momentum spectrum

Abstract Recently two papers have been published which contain results on the branching ratio of the two D-D reactions at variance with those of earlier workers. In this note it is suggested that
