Cavitation-Induced Fusion: Proof of Concept
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Cavitation-induced fusion (also known as bubble fusion or sonofusion) has been a topic of much debate and controversy and is generally (albeit incorrectly) perceived as unworkable. In this paper we present the theoretical foundations of cavitation-induced fusion and summarize the experimental results of the research conducted in the past 20 years. Based on the systematic study of all available data we conclude that the cavitation-induced fusion is feasible, doable, and can be used for commercial power generation. In this talk we present the results of our own research including neutron detection in singlebubble and multi-bubble experiments. We further demonstrate prototype 100kW commercial generator and discuss R&D necessary to achieve break-even energy production.
