Magnetic Fusion Energy

  • Brendan McNamara


These lectures on Magnetic Fusion Energy are presented as the transcript of the discussion of the large number of slides and drawings taken from many sources within the U.S. MFE program. In particular, I would like to mention Hal Furth of Princeton, John Dawson at UCLA, the Washington Head Office and may colleagues in the Mirror Program at the Livermore Laboratory.
