Monolithic Coil Tokamak
Electric guns, theoretical and practical, have been around for many years in many forms. They have been slow to develop however because the competition, in the form of gas dynamic guns, has been formidable. To accelerate ...
Fusion Ignition Experiment
Experimental Data on High Power Explosive Opening and Closing Switches at CEM-UT
The need for high power switching i n pulse power research has lead to the development of fast acting opening and closing switches with current capacity of more than 1 MA. Presented is the performance data of two switches ...
The Conceptual Design of a Lightweight Compulsator-Driven Electromagnetic Accelerator
The development of light-weight pulsed power supplies which can deliver significant amounts of energy in a properly conditioned pulse has been an issue throughout the investigation of electromagnetic (EM) launchers and ...
Fusion Testing Device
A recently proposed fusion testing device called IGNITEX is described in this paper. The original idea was recently proposed by M.N. Rosenbluth, W.A. Weldon, and H.H. Woodson. The bases for the concept are B. Coppi's ideas ...
A Lunar Electromagnetic Launcher
This paper details a lunar surface electromagnetic launcher concept and supporting systems which delivers one metric ton of lunar-derived liquid oxygen to low lunar orbit per payload launch. A passive coaxial accelerator ...
The Homopolar Pulse Billet Heating Process
The use of homopolar generators operated in the pulse mode to heat forging billets offers several possible advantages over present heating methods. Because heating is uniform throughout the entire cross section, billets ...
