Description

Abstract The introduction of a μ^-particle into a mixture of hydrogen isotopes brings about a repetitive cycle of processes leading to nuclear fusion and the release of energy. Sticking is one of the critical processes limiting the number of fusions induced by one muon during its lifetime. When the (αμ)^+ion created with the energy E=3.46 MeV is slowed down in a dense DT mixture, the muon can be stripped (reactivated), thus allowing the muon to return to the catalytic cycle. The coupled differenti... Title of program: DPDE Catalogue Id: ABRQ_v1_0 Nature of problem The introduction of a mu- particle into a mixture of hydrogen isotopes brings about a repetitive cycle of processes leading to nuclear fusion and the release of energy. Sticking is one of the critical processes limiting the number of fusions induced by one muon during its lifetime. When the (alpha mu)+ ion created with the energy E=3.46 MeV is slowed down in a dense D-T mixture, the muon can be stripped (reactivated), thus allowing the muon to return to the catalytic cycle. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ABRQ_v1_0; DPDE; 10.1016/0010-4655(90)90093-G This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
