A very interesting lecture. There are many alternative ways for fusion power.
Some of them have to work. Its important to have research on many alternatives.
seems to this concept can not do the direct conversion of fusion to electric energy.
If so it become more expensive than focus fusion. Butt still far better than the tocamac.
Special this seems as Busard give no answer to this.
“Fundamental limitations on plasma fusion systems not in thermodynamic equilibrium”, thesis of Dr. Todd Rider
Maybe Todds thesis is a problem for focus fusion to?
And spoil the possibility for boron fusion.
Ops writing again in this tread. Now I think I understand a little bit more.
The main component of energy loss according to Todds thesis are the “Bremsstrahlung”.
And this is the same as X-ray cooling.
If Lener are right abut the magnetic field effect there is no problem for the focus fusion
but probably for the inertial-electrostatic confinement fusion.
Ok I was wrong. The concept may probably reduce the Bremsstrahlung with no help by strong magnetic fields.
The electrons are drawn to the outer electrode and the ions to the void in the central electrode.
Hence few electron-ion collisions and for that reason little X-ray cooling. There seems to be several ways to go round Todds thesis.
