Description of a Thermonuclear Reactor Based on the Use of a Layer of Relativistic Electrons to Confine and Heat the Plasma

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A long layer of rotating relativistic electrons was employed in a proposed scheme of a thermonuclear reactor to provide a closed pattern of magnetic field liens and to heat the plasma to fusion temperature. Parameters of a production machine and experimental model are presented. The general requirements for the plasma confinement at adequate density and temperature are summarized. Establishment of the electron layer is described. The equilibrium of the plasma under these conditions was investigated and the stability of this equilibrium distribution determined. (M.C.G.)
