Hot Fusion

[See also cold fusion; and, compact fusion drive proposal, model-A]


* (Intranuclear electron density: 61% in heavy nuclei, 56% in medium nuclei; tritons at 33%, are shy of stable by merely 18.6KeV; helon-3's are stable at 67%; deuterons at 50%, and helon-4's especially hard; whence the region of stability begins just above 33% electron overburden-removed and continues up above 66%.)

(Roughly half the thermal electron-loading overburden can be removed and the plasma will remain very stable (*), and even improve, splitting in unhomogenized corotating microcells increasing proton collisions head-on ... binding electrons core-shielding quadratured positive paired-nuclei d-e-d semi-isolated and semi-insulated at equilibrium.

* (Proton-electron chain repulsion can be overcome by intersticial fraction-electron-charge shielding at the half-way interposition:-- its cumulative end-pair repulsion is (1+fec²) Σ 1/n² against its end-pair attraction of 2(fec) Σ 1/(n-.5)² - 4(fec) ,--requiring only an interpositional 0.3-electron charge fraction to hold the chain together (electrons must weave or braid stacked-figure-eights through the line of protons) ... And thus if the dimensionality of the plasma can be kept near one-dimensional, as on a quiet magnetic line, then the binding electron-charge fraction can be significantly dropped, and the line will almost shrink itself to fusion ...


And, there are alternatives--

With significant spacing between proton-electron lines, cumulative repulsion is 2(1-fec) Σ 1/n ... [reconstruction] against the magnetic bottle, or against an intersticial attraction (*) up to 2(1-fec) Σ 1/(n-.5) ... [reconstruction] ... and though tending unstable, will hold it.

Beyond the plasmoid-drip line (toward maximal electron paucity), dynamic semi-homogenous plasma results as the homogenous plasma tends to fracture, increasing the plasma pressure by increasing the inhomogeneities count.

A charged plasma string should also be more stable against pinch instability exhibited by neutral plasmas, as electrons chase protons.

Furthermore, in choice of fusant, helium-3 nuclei bind second ionization electrons 4x tighter while costing slightly less than 2x more energy to ionize first electrons, than hydrogen-2 nuclei deuterons which have only first electrons to be either bound or ionized; thus efficiently allowing plasma temperatures 4x higher.

[A secondary use may be in construction of pseudo-nuclear proton-bombs, like ball-lightning, unleashed in impact with a source of thermally available electrons, or chilled or compressed to sufficient density to trigger its tenous energy release for momentary power generation]
