Submission + - Fusion power breakthrough near at Sandia labs? (

An anonymous reader writes: An achievement that would have extraordinary energy and defense implications might be near at Sandia National Laboratories. The lab is testing a concept called MagLIF (Magnetized Liner Inertial Fusion), which uses magnetic fields and laser pre-heating in the quest for energetic fusion. A paper recently published by Sandia researchers state that the Z-pinch driven MagLIF fusion could reach "high-gain" fusion conditions, where the fusion energy released greatly exceeds (by more than 1,000 times) the energy supplied to the fuel.
