Abstract

Magneto-inertial fusion (MIF) is an original technique of inertial thermonuclear fusion, where spherical and cylindrical gas or plasma configurations are compressed under the action of an external magnetic field. We present a brief review of recent data on laser- and plasma jet-driven MIF systems and possible ways they can be applied. This work also presents problems of and prospects for the application of such approaches.
