Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A research team at Osaka University has investigated a new method for generating nuclear fusion power. They are showing that the relativistic effect of ultra-intense laser light improves upon current “fast ignition” methods in laser-fusion research to heat the fuel long enough to generate electrical power. These findings could provide another spark for laser […]

Professor José Luis González Díez from the Higher Technical School of Naval Engineering at the Universidad politécnica de Madrid (UPM) has patented a nuclear fusion reactor of the inertial confinement type.  The design is proposed for use both to generate electric power for utilities, as well as applied to ship propulsion.  The design appears to […]
