Title
(EN) ORBITAL CONFINEMENT FUSION DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE FUSION À CONFINEMENT ORBITAL
Abstract
(EN) Systems, devices, and methods for generating an orbital confinement fusion reaction are described. An orbital confinement fusion device can include a cathodic inner electrode defining a longitudinal axis of the device. The inner electrode can include an emitter material. The orbital confinement fusion device can include an anodic outer electrode, concentric with the longitudinal axis and defining a chamber between the inner electrode and the outer electrode. The orbital confinement fusion device can also include a plurality of magnetic field generators disposed in a coaxial arrangement relative to the longitudinal axis. The plurality of magnetic field generators can be configured to form a magnetic field parallel to the longitudinal axis in the chamber.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes, des dispositifs et des procédés permettant de générer une réaction de fusion à confinement orbital. Un dispositif de fusion à confinement orbital peut comprendre une électrode interne cathodique définissant un axe longitudinal du dispositif. L'électrode interne peut comprendre un matériau émetteur. Le dispositif de fusion à confinement orbital peut comprendre une électrode externe anodique, concentrique à l'axe longitudinal et délimitant une chambre entre l'électrode interne et l'électrode externe. Le dispositif de fusion à confinement orbital peut également comprendre une pluralité de générateurs de champ magnétique disposés selon un agencement coaxial par rapport à l'axe longitudinal. Les générateurs de la pluralité de générateurs de champ magnétique peuvent être conçus pour former un champ magnétique parallèle à l'axe longitudinal dans la chambre.
