When you do a Z-pinch and deuterium is present in the plasma there will be fusion; now I wonder about other elements or isotopes. If, say a Lithium wire, is imploded in a Z-pinch will there be fusion and bursts of neutrons? Or if you use a mixture of He and Li or whatever light elements? References? I searched for this on Google and in the university computers but found nothing useful, therefore I ask here. S.A.
