# ERRATUM: Improved formulas for fusion cross-sections and thermal reactivities

@article{Bosch1992ERRATUMIF, title={ERRATUM: Improved formulas for fusion cross-sections and thermal reactivities}, author={Hans-Stephan Bosch and Gerald M. Hale}, journal={Nuclear Fusion}, year={1992} }

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…
