Abstract

A low-z ablation-dominated capillary with an ablation-free extension barrel is a concept that provides a plasma flow sufficient to propel fuel pellets into the tokamak fusion plasma chamber. The acceleration barrel is made from a non-ablating material to eliminate mixing the propelling plasma with any impurities evolving from the barrel ablation.
