Fusion reactivity of the pB11 plasma revisited
June 2019 | S.V. Putvinski | Nuclear Fusion | Paper
Fusion reactivity for the pB11 fuel has been reassessed for magnetic confinement devices. This study is based on two factors: new measurements of the fusion reaction cross-sections and an accounting of the kinetic effects that lead to the increase of the number of protons at higher energies (with respect to a pure Maxwellian).
