Investigation of the Effects of Target Structuring and Composition on Nuclear Reaction Rates Under sub-MeV Ion Beam Flux

This project will use a low energy particle accelerator to explore methods of improving the number of fusion reactions in specially designed targets. This work will then be used assist in the development of a feasible commercial fusion power plant that is green, uses cheap and abundant fuel, and is reliable.
