NANO DISCOVERIES: Dr Graeme Greaves at Huddersfield University's Miami (Microscope and Ion Accelerators for Materials Investigation) unit (S)
The panel noted that there are three main approaches to IFE, based on heavy ion accelerators, lasers, and z-pinches.
Graeme is able to help provide the answer by using lab facilities at the University of Huddersfield that includes an advanced piece of equipment named MIAMI - which stands for Microscope and Ion Accelerators for Materials Investigation.
There are several types of such drivers: heavy ion accelerators, pulsed power z-pinches and new types of lasers, under development.
The high electrical efficiency of high-current ion accelerators makes them attractive as drivers for inertial fusion power plants.
