Inertial Confinement Fusion

Pinhead Size Pellet Delivering Oil Barrel Worth of Energy

Since the invention of Inertial Confinement Fusion in 1970s multiple experiments have been conducted suggesting all kinds of things, but generally pushing researchers towards the opinion that Inertial Confinement Fusion method is not as efficient as science originally thought it would be.
The idea behind the Inertial Confinement is safety, manageability and portability. Being not nearly as radioactive and toxic as conventional nuclear fuels, deuterium and tritium are begging to be used in portable applications as technological advances permit.
The biggest problems so far have been the energy efficient reaction trigger, commonly, very powerful laser, designed to provoke the reaction by heating up fuel pallets to incredible temperatures.
Also, there has to be a perfect way to control the explosion taking place when pallets go off during inertial confinement fusion. That is why pellets are made only about ten milligrams in size, though there is a full barrel of gas worth of energy is hidden in those ten milligrams.
To be able to stick the inertial confinement fusion reactor under the hood of a car we will yet have to overcome few obstacles, but it is already clear that what has been on many progressive minds in respect of vehicle energy source.
