    Fusion is the process of fusing two atoms into a single atom...

    According to the Einstein equation E=mc^2 the energy can be released in kinetic form with a change of mass into energy...

    The control and sustainability of fusion is the question which is under the world discussion. We can say that energy is the big question in the world today with an exploding population...

    For this the change of the hydrogen atoms into the Helium atoms by fusion can be a feasible way of getting energy...
    Here we will discuss different ways of getting the sustainability of fusion...

    If we can mix a heavier isotope plasma with the mixture of deuterium and tritium plasma that can help to give a momentum increase in the plasma which will be a method of sustained fusion reaction...

    D + T -----> He + n

    Like Beryllium and Aluminum etc...

    Any more ideas.....

    What is the point of this post?

    Yes, fusion is only sustainable as long as you have smaller atoms to combine, which means the more you have the longer you can sustain it.
    It just so happens that we already have the biggest fusion reactor we could ever dream of building, and we call it the Sun.

    We are already able to capture with solar panels a tiny fraction of the energy emitted, and this is enough to power a home and a car. Understanding and developments in materials stands to greatly increase the amount of energy we can harness, we should be able to power houses with 21st century versions of windows and roofs. Such a solution is 10,000 times better then a central fusion power plant, because it is a distributed solution, it grants greater local independence and more resilient/redundant.

    Can it? Do you have a reference for that? It sounds counter intuitive... I would have thought the presence of heavy ions would damp the reaction.

    The
    above is a thorough discussion of the subject.

    cumulative increase in temperature of the different isotope masses can help in achieving a reaction that can start with lower temperature...

    As I say, do you have a reference for that?

    I prefer the idea of Aneutronic fusion, such as pB11 or pLi7. It should be much easier (and more efficient) to collect energy from, as such reactions don't produce neutrons.
