The plasma focus and thermonuclear fusion

  • C. Maisonnier
Article

Abstract

Present-day notions concerning the effects involved in a plasma focus are reviewed, the efficiency of various energy transmission channels in the device is analyzed, and some ideas relating to the possible extrapolation to larger devices are indicated.
