Abstract

D+D fusion may be initiated in ultra-dense deuterium D(−1) by nanosecond and picosecond pulsed lasers, as reported previously. Two in-line current collectors observe the MeV particles ejected from the laser target at up to a meter distance in a vacuum. The current signal is measured directly by using a fast oscilloscope with nanosecond resolution. Most of the signal observed is due to fast particles with energy of 3–14 MeV u −1. This confirms that the second stage of fusion reactions 3He+D and T+D initiated in D+D fusion takes place, since otherwise such a large energy would not be available. The reaction rate for 3He and T at MeV energies is high, which means reaction with D after moving a short distance of 150 nm in the ultra-dense material.
