Edward Teller lectures lasers and inertial fusion energy by Heinrich Hora ( )
14 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How to achieve unlimited, safe, clean and low-cost energy by laser- or beam-driven inertial nuclear fusion has preoccupied all winners of the Edward Teller Medal since its inception in 1991. This book presents their findings, meeting discussions, and personal insights from Edward Teller himself. Expect discussion of important advances anticipated in the future such as multi-billion dollar fusion research projects (NIF), and new schemes such as the petawatt-picosecond laserplasma interactions evoking new physics and coupling mechanisms. For the first time, laser technology of the new century i

Life at the center of the energy crisis a technologist's search for a black swan by George H Miley ( )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Life at the Center of the Energy Crisis: A Technologist's Search for a Black Swan describes the story of the author's work and struggles in the field of energy research. The author's experience in the field spans from work with Admiral Rickover and the Nuclear Navy to research with NASA designing propulsion for spacecraft to travel to Mars. The book provides insights into the differences between nuclear research done during the Cold War by the two superpowers, and offers a commentary on the flaws in each system with hope for change in the future. The book also provides a look into the developm

Inertial Electrostatic Confinement (IEC) Fusion Fundamentals and Applications by George H Miley ( )
3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides readers with an introductory understanding of Inertial Electrostatic Confinement (IEC), a type of fusion meant to retain plasma using an electrostatic field. IEC provides a unique approach for plasma confinement, as it offers a number of spin-off applications, such as a small neutron source for Neutron Activity Analysis (NAA), that all work towards creating fusion power. The IEC has been identified in recent times as an ideal fusion power unit because of its ability to burn aneutronic fuels like p-B11 as a result of its non-Maxwellian plasma dominated by beam-like ions. This

Principles of fusion energy an introduction to fusion energy for students of science and engineering by A. A Harms ( Book )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This textbook accommodates the two divergent developmental paths which have become solidly established in the field of fusion energy: the process of sequential tokamak development toward a prototype and the need for a more fundamental and integrative research approach before costly design choices are made. Emphasis is placed on the development of physically coherent and mathematically clear characterizations of the scientific and technological foundations of fusion energy which are specifically suitable for a first course on the subject. Of interest, therefore, are selected aspects of nuclear
