A sustained high-temperature fusion plasma regime facilitated by fast ions
Prof. Yong-Su Na
Nuclear fusion is one of the most attractive alternatives to carbon-dependent energy sources1. Harnessing energy from nuclear fusion in a large reactor scale, however, still presents many scientific challenges despite the many years of research and steady advances in magnetic confinement approaches.
