Influence of Admixture Gas on the Enhancement of Neutron Production in Plasma Focus Devices
Journal of Fusion Energy
In this article, considering the most important interactions between the ionized admixture particles and the working plasma ones, we have analyzed the effect of added gas on the current and confinement time of the pinched plasma in plasma focus devices. Moreover, we demonstrate how heating and cooling the pinched plasma can be controlled by the increase and decrease on the percentage of the added particles and by this way the rise in the rate of D–D nuclear reactions is calculated.
