The concept in this proposal is to capture the neutrons arising from deuterium fusion. Nuclear fusion generates nuclear energy without poisonous and radioactive nuclear waste. Of course, fusion generated neutrons are still a problem. This company is looking for co-developing this concept in the framework of a research and development agreement.
The company has a concept solutions for the generated neutrons when generating nuclear energy. The concept in this proposal is to “capture” the neutrons arising from e.g. deuterium fusion. To, subsequently, let those neutrons fuse with protons and in this way regenerate deuterium plus obtain a thermal energy of ~ 2 Giga Kelvin. The energy is in the form of X-rays. The energy of those X-rays can e.g. be employed to keep the deuterium fusion reaction going. However, it can also be employed to heat up a steam turbine and generate electricity. The protons in the reaction can originate from e.g. ³⁹K¹H crystals or prgaps better from Deuteron fusion. The company is looking for partners to co-develop this concept in the framework of a research and development agreement.
Advantages and innovations
1. Regeneration of fuel (=deuterium) from waste (=neutrons). 2. Derive energy from fusion waste products (=neutrons).
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought
The partners we seek are experts capable to: 1a. Generate neutrons and protons. 1b. Having installations to safely perform experiments on neutron and proton fusion without necessarily starting initially from deuteron fusion. 1c. Are capable to judge the neutron - proton fusion success rate coming from deuteron fusion. One needs to arrange it so that both particles, i.e. the n and the p, can "meet" each other after deuteron fusion: D(d,n)³He and D(d,p)³H. Complication is the ~15 minutes lifetime of the neutron. 1d. Know how to convert the X-rays representing a temperature of 2GK from the neutron-proton fusion into e.g. steam so that turbines can be driven by the neutron proton fusion reaction. Concerning 1d, similarly is already applied in nuclear power plants. But the fusion temperature will likely be higher (viz. 1b and the 1A4 paper). Note, most likely, deuteron fusion will cost energy because of two "+" charges colliding. One need to overcome the coulomb repelling force. The energy has to be derived from the n p fusion. Fusion of n and p is not hampered by coulomb force. Part of that energy from n p fusion has to flow back to drive the deuteron fusion.
