The Role of Electronic and Ionic Collisions in Tokamak Devices

  • M. F. A. Harrison
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 145)


The primary objective of research into controlled thermo-nuclear fusion is to develop an effective energy source based on the reaction
$$ D + T \to ({}^4He + 3.52{\kern 1pt} MeV) + (n + 14.06{\kern 1pt} MeV) $$
