Abstract:

This paper presents considerations on the design of a magnetic linear accelerator suitable as driver for impact fusion. We argue that the proposed approach offers an attractive option to accelerate macroscopic matter to centiluminal velocity suitable to fusion applications. Design and practical engineering considerations are treated. Future work are outlined.
