The physical principles of thermonuclear explosive devices (Fusion Energy Foundation frontiers of science series)

Friedwardt Winterberg


Dr. Friedwardt Winterberg has labored for a few 30 years within the managed nuclear fusion and guns re­search groups. He used to be the 1st to suggest electron­ beam pellet fusion, ion-beam pellet fusion, influence fusion, magnetic isolation of electron beam and ion beam diodes for particle-beam fusion, and particle-beam superpinch fusion. He was once additionally one of the first to post papers at the use of fusion and microexplosions for house propul­sion, on an electromagnetic rail gun powered by way of a hydro­gen bomb, at the staging of pellet pursuits, and on autocatalytic drivers for thermonuclear surprise waves.

His publication, which completely explains thermonuclear explosive units from the H-bomb, to beam guns, to the presently ballyhooed neutron bomb, was once written out of a passionate dedication to harnessing thermo­nuclear fusion as an inexpensive, fresh, and abundant strength source.

Over the years,Winterberg's dedication to achiev­ing fusion power has led him to inquire into many components which are formally circumscribed through army secrecy clas­sification. due to the fact that he doesn't carry a Q clearance, the ranking required of scientists and different group of workers inquisitive about examine in components concerning thermonuclear bomb pro­duction, he has needed to reconstruct loads of the considering that has long gone into bomb layout. This publication is an consequence of that learn.
