Prospects for Low Cost Fusion Development
Posted: Wed Apr 17, 2019 12:51 pm
This documents reports on an ARPA-E sponsored JASON assessment of the “Prospects for Low Cost Fusion Development.” Specifically, the question is whether magneto-inertial fusion (MIF) is a promising approach toward achieving controlled thermonuclear fusion at dramatically lower costs than other approaches.
Table 5 gives an overview of goal parameters and in some cases achieved parameters for the different fusion approaches.
