    Could we create Nuclear fusion ??

    Could we archive nuclear fusion in a tokamak like a H bomb ??

    If we get urani/ plotoni meltdown , it ll create
    - Enegry to heat up
    - Enough neutron to reach the Lawson criterion
    - Enough neutron to reduce EMF between nuclears , so it get easier to attach and synthesis new nuclears

    Neutrons do not help with fusion.

    A hydrogen bomb is a transient phenomenon, and it is not possible to use that process in a Tokamak. Magnetically confined and controlled fusion is very different from a thermonuclear detonation.

    We wish to avoid melting U and Pu fuel.
