Fusion Energy Will Play An Increasing Importance In Global Energy

Currently, the European Union obtains most of it energy from outside the union, the energy which comprises of oil and gas is estimated to be more than 50% of the country’s energy supply. The union’s annual energy bill totals to 240 billion Euros. It is also estimated that EU spends 500 billion euros annually on [...]

Fusion Technology: ITER & Others

For sustainable fusion reaction to be realized, the tritium and deuterium plasma must be exposed to temperatures of over 100 million °C using powerful heaters with minimal loss of energy. To maintain that high temperature, the hot plasma must be placed a distance from the reactors interior. Since the plasma is an electrically-charged gas, it [...]

What is ITER: Fusion Energy

ITER is a Latin word meaning “the way.” It refers to a major international experiment that seeks to demonstrate the scientific and technical possibility of fusion as a source of energy. ITER will be 30 times larger in comparison to the Joint European Torus (JET), currently the world’s largest comparable experiment in operation. It will [...]

Fusion Energy Will Play An Important Role in Future Energy

In order to satisfy the ever increasing energy demand of the world, new and environmentally friendly, reliable forms of electricity need to be developed. The energy demand could be tripled by 2050 due to the expected rise in global population from the current 6 billion to 9 billion in addition to improved livelihoods. Since every [...]

Computerized simulation of Nuclear Fusion Displays High Energy Generation

Numerous computerized recreations performed by Sandia National Laboratories indicate that High-gain nuclear synthesis could come into fruition use. This was shown with of a tubular container heated, which was immersed in a heavy magnetic-field zone. In this simulation, the output energy was significantly higher (50 times) than the input energy directed on the liner of [...]

Fusion Energy: The Truth

Nuclear fusion energy remains vague or unknown to the general public for many years. Despite being the possible solution to mankind’s energy crisis via a fairly safe and waste-free electricity generation process, its research appears to be never-ending and a few witnesses predict that it will take another 20 years for the technology to be [...]

Fusion Power Are Gradually Being Improved To Perfection

Progress of MIT research might eliminate contaminants, which slow fusion reactions. This breakthrough is bringing the realisation of a potential fusion power plant one step closer. The MIT’s experimental Alcator C-Mod reactor (world’s best University-based Fusion machine) has progressed in promoting the use of fusion-power reactor. The tests have found some operating parameters for the [...]

Overcoming the Obstacles of Nuclear Energy

An atom is the tiniest component of any element. However, it contains a massive quantity of energy. There is a process known as fission, which involves splitting atoms. The fission process generates an enormous amount of light and heat. An example of the fission process was witnessed in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. The dreadful terror [...]

Laser Fusion; Innovative STAR Technology Coming to Earth

Fusion energy in the sphere of laser is taking off. It has since long been envisaged to ignite fusion energy through laser. The experiment shows how a great amount of energy can be harnessed from the ignition of laser fusion often referred to as star energy. The lasers are intended to burst up heat to [...]

Time for Fusion Energy

Fusion energy is something that we will hear much about in the future. It is in simple term described by the fusion of two atoms making it one. This source of energy can apparently last for thousands of years without harmful waste products or radioactive waste. Machinery required to give birth to fusion energy is [...]
