  • Content Description: The proposal is to make large deuterium (D-D) magnetic fusion power plants in which some (most) of the tritium produced by fusion is removed and stored. This tritium will ultimately decay to helium-3 that will be recycled to supplement the helium-3 produced by fusion. Thus the dominant fusion becomes that of deuterium and helium-3. The level of neutron damage is reduced very substantially from that for a D-T power plant.
