11: public supply contract whose purpose is the delivery and installation of two additive fabrication machines for laser fusion
of metal powders.
The cell could utilize a novel packaging approach in which a flex circuit is directly bonded to multiple, small contact pads by high-speed laser fusion
The prospects for laser fusion
were being studied on a classified basis at AEC weapons laboratories at the time.
For example the system for Jewelry printing will be completely different from the Laser Fusion
system capable of manufacturing medical contact pads or missile war heads.
Detailed May 18 in Nature Photonics, the design relies on a hohlraum, a small metal cylinder that holds hydrogen fuel in laser fusion
experiments (SN: 4/20/13, p.
Concept Laser is showcasing a generative metal laser fusion
solution at this industry gathering with its LaserCUSING[sup.
Technology developed for astronomy is already being applied across many sectors, including extending the life of artificial knee joints, diagnosing eye diseases, improving the performance of industrial lasers and laser fusion
The Lawrence Livermore National Lab near San Francisco has built a laser fusion
device called the National Ignition Facility, capable of delivering 500 terawatts to a BB-sized target, liberating clean energy.
The project also opens the door for developing laser fusion
facilities, a technology with real potential to help solve the world's energy crisis.
In the meantime, contributors of these 61 papers and other materials describe international cooperation and overall progress in fusion research, results of plasma-focus experiments and dense plasma focus, numerical simulations and burning plasma concepts, antimatter-initiated microfission/fusion, studies of fast particles using pellet charge exchange diagnostics, plans for the National Ignition Facility, physics results and prospects of the National Spherical Torus Experiment, fusion at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Z-pinch experiments, laser fusion
in China, and fast ignition.
Other projects the company hopes to become involved with include the EU's HiPER very high energy laser fusion
reactor which will require very precise mirrors to focus high powered laser beams onto fuel pellets in an experimental reactor.
England, took second place with a laser fusion
coating system for applying nonstick, low-friction surfaces of Teflon on large metal objects.
