The best-known fusion fuel
, the heavy hydrogen isotope deuterium, can be extracted from seawater.
It was possible the North was referring to the technology of boosting the yield of a nuclear device, possibly using fusion fuel
, Lewis said.
Thus, UNIT induces fusion in its chamber, which contains a capsule filled with fusion fuel
, by ICF.
Because the source of nuclear fusion fuel
is abundant in nature, thermonuclear fusion, once proven, is expected to become a perpetual source of energy.
13 ( ANI ): Scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have taken a step to bring fusion fuel
closer to reality.
The approach to achieving fusion "ignition" by compressing a small spherical capsule containing fusion fuel
to ultra-high density, using the high power laser of the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), relies on a technique called "indirect drive".
Efficient--1kg of fusion fuel
produces the same amount of energy as 10,000,000 kg of fossil fuels
The liner is intended to contain fusion fuel
like a can holds peanut butter, and push it together in nanoseconds like two semicylindrical shovels compacting snow together.
If this technology lives up to its promise, it could deliver 1,000,000 times more power from 1Kg of fusion fuel
than from 1Kg of fossil fuel.
One kilogram of fusion fuel
would produce the same amount of energy as 10,000,000kg of fossil fuel.
By studying the physics of inertial confinement fusion and the response of weapon materials placed near a fusion fuel
capsule, the caretakers of the bombs and missiles can better understand the aging process.
