Although China and the United Kingdom are currently pioneers in artificial sun technology, it seems that the first compact devices will appear in the US military. At least these are the plans of the Pentagon, which has been investing sky-high funds in futuristic technologies of the future for several years in order to modernize the army in the reality of a growing threat from China.
Built by Great Britain, China, South Korea and the European Union, fusion reactors are the size of a building. Meanwhile, in the United States, the military is developing a compact version at the Naval Air Warfare Center, which will be fully mobile and will not take up a large amount of space on ships.
Engineer Salvatore Cezar Pais developed for the Pentagon the concept of a fusion reactor based on a completely different technology than currently used in the world. It is based on a part called dynamic fusor. According to this patent, the Paisa plasma chamber contains several pairs of these dynamic fusers which rapidly spin and vibrate in the chamber to produce a "concentrated flux of magnetic energy". Its job to compress the gases together.
The fusors are electrically charged in the shape of a cone and pump fuel gases such as deuterium or deuterium-xenon into the chamber, which are then subjected to high temperature and pressure to trigger the nucleus fusing reaction. Engineers' calculations show that the device has the potential to generate more than a terawatt of energy, while consuming energy levels ranging from kilowatt to megawatt. This means that a compact artificial sun will be profitable and will provide enough energy for the operation of even the most demanding watercraft.
Interestingly, the British recently made a major breakthrough in building the first functional fusion reactors. Scientists from the Tokamak Energy company presented the latest and most advanced HTS magnets in the world, made of high-temperature superconducting material. According to the company's plan, magnets with such properties were not to be created until the end of 2020, but scientists managed to prepare them now. Thanks to them, work on the construction of a functional fusion reactor will now significantly accelerate.
