Title: APPARATUS AND PROCESS FOR PENETRATION OF THE COULOMB BARRIER
Abstract:
A device and method for penetrating the Coulomb barrier is disclosed, An electrode is positioned within a hollow shell, the shell enclosing an inner space containing a fusion reactive fuel such as deuterium. The inner space with the fuel is coaxially centered about the electrode, and a confinement layer made of a high dielectric strength material is located at the outer edge of the inner space, on the inside surface of the spherical shell. A high voltage power source charges the electrode, which causes a tightly packed fusion fuel nucleus cloud such as a deuteron cloud to form on the inner face of the confinement layer, facilitating coulomb barrier penetration. Using the device of the invention, conditions can also be created which enable Coulomb barrier penetration by firing nuclei towards the cloud of nuclei by applying high voltage pulses to the electrode.
