Inventor Alfred Y. Wong
Worldwide application/priority 2015
G21B3/00 Low temperature nuclear fusion reactors, e.g. alleged cold fusion reactors
Y02E30/10 Nuclear fusion reactors
Methods, apparatus, devices, and systems for creating, controlling, conducting, and optimizing fusion activities of nuclei. In particular, the present inventions relate to, among other things, fusion activities that are conducted individually or collectively on a very small scale, preferably on the nano-scale or smaller such as pico to femto scales, for the utilization of energy produced from these activities in smaller devices and for aggregation into larger devices.
