Description

NearStar Fusion is pursuing Magnetized Target Impact Fusion (MTIF). This approach envisions a railgun which launches 50 gram projectiles at 10 km/s at pure deuterium fuel targets which are magnetized upon impact. If successful, a power plant based on this design could deliver 50-100MWe of electricity to the grid.
