Challenges on the road towards fusion electricity
The ultimate aim of fusion research is to generate electricity by fusing light atoms into heavier ones, thereby converting mass into energy. The most efficient fusion reaction is based on merging the hydrogenic isotopes: Deuterium (2D) and Tritium (3T) into Helium (4He) and a neutron, which releases 17.6 MeV in the form of kinetic energy of the reaction products.
