Experiments with the deuteron would probe the same scales of energy as the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the European Organization foruclear Research, and could lead to completely new discoveries in physics, Van Kolck said: "It's a different way to look for physics beyond the standard model.
Since neutrons are only rarely formed from protons, a relatively small number of deuterons are produced at any one time, and thus solar fuel (deuterons) constitutes but a tiny fraction of the total material in the sun.
Because the deuteron, carrying an electric charge, could be accelerated in a cyclotron and made very energetic.
The mass of equivalent to the Higgs boson mass are obtained, the coupling constants in different types of interactions, the binding energy of the deuteron, triton, and alpha particles are defined, the possible ranges of alpha particles energies are identified, and dependence of the nucleon-nucleon interaction from a distance is explained.
This is a rough heuristic estimate of the separation distance between the proton and neutron cores within the deuteron.

In the case of the deuteron, one might expect it to look more like six quarks than two nucleons.
The proposed deuteron reactions, however, are either qualitatively or quantitatively inaccurate--barring an unnatural burst of high energy photons (photofission).
At SLAC, researchers obtained high-precision results for the quark spin contribution in the proton and deuteron (composed of a proton and neutron), confirming that the constituent quarks of both the proton and the neutron carry only a fraction of the particle's overall spin.
The sun's energy comes primarily from the fusion of two protons to form a deuteron, accompanied by the emission of a positron and a neutrino.
In a deuteron the proton-neutron binding energy is about 2.
