  • A reconsideration of electrostatically accelerated and confined nuclear fusion for space applications. 

    Macleod, Christopher; Gow, Kenneth S. (British Interplanetary Society, 2010)
    MACLEOD, C. and GOW, K. S., 2010. A reconsideration of electrostatically accelerated and confined nuclear fusion for space applications. Journal of the British Interplanetary Society (JBIS), Volume 63 Number 5/6, pp. 192 - 205
    Most present-day research into Nuclear Fusion concentrates on high-temperature plasmas combined with Inertial or Magnetic Confinement. However, there exists another body of less well-known work based on Electrostatic ...
