Plasma Walls for Controlled Fusion
Name: june hagberg
Date: Around 1993
Is there a material, at present, that can facilitate a controlled fusion
reaction? If so, what is this material and how readily available is it?
Not really. So far I think the record for a sustained fusion reaction is
still less than a second. This (I believe) was at the Princeton Tokamac
experiment. The mixture of tritium deuterium is contained in a toroidal
magnetic field and is excited by some type of accelerator to fusion tempera-
tures. You should probably ask the same question of the Physicists because
they are more likely the ones that keep up with this technology.
