I find focus fusion rather exiting, and I think it might be the solution to many of the problems we face. One thing I was wondering was how fuel would be injected into the device between pulses, given the need for rapid (1000+ per second)pulses to generate a steady flow of electricity. I am unclear how you propose to keep the beast fed, so to speak. Could someone clarify this for me?
In each pulse only a tiny fraction of the gas in the vacuum chamber is trapped in the plasmoid and burned. That fraction, both the fusion “ash” , which is helium, and the unburned fuel, is evacuated by the ion beam. This small loss will be replaced continuously from a reservoir of the fuel.
