Impulse Mini Thermonuclear Reactors

Authors: Alexander Bolonkin

In last sixty years, the scientists spent the tens billion dollars attempting to develop useful thermonuclear energy. However, they cannot yet reach a stable thermonuclear reaction. They still are promising publically, after another 15 – 20 years, and more tens of billions of US dollars to finally design the expensive workable industrial installation, which possibly will produce electric energy more expensive than current heat, wind and hydroelectric stations can in 2015. The author offers two types (cumulative and impulse) the new, small cheap inertial thermonuclear reactors, which increases the pressure and temperature of its nuclear fuel by thousands of times, reaches the required ignition stage and, ultimately, full constant contained thermonuclear reaction. Cumulative and impulse AB Reactors contain several innovations to achieve its product. Chief among them in cumulative reactor is using moving explosives (rocket thrust) and an electric descharge, which allows to accelerate the special piston to very high speed (more 20 km/s) which (as shown by integral computations) compresses the fuel capsule a million times and additional heating fuel by electric impulse up hundreds millions degrees of temperature. In impulse vertion of AB therbonucler reactor the gas fuel, praimery high compressed into a pellet heationg by an electric impulse up the needed temperature in hundred of millions degrees, produces the thermonucler reaction. Author gives theory and estimations of the suggested reactors. Author also is descussing the problems of converting the received thermonucler energy into mechanical (electrical) energy and into rocket thrust. Offered small micro-reactors may be used as heaves (ignition) for small artillery atomic projectiles and bomb.
