The influence of Hively and Bosch-Hale reactivities on hot ion mode in deuterium/helium-3 fuel



Nowadays, there is much extensive research investigating nuclear fusion reaction with D-3He fuel as one of the most essential advanced fusion fuels. One of the most important quantities in fusion is the reactivity. In this work, with consideration of different temperatures for ion and electron (hot ion mode), we intend to study the effects of two different reactivities (Hively and Bosch-Hale) on D-3He fusion reaction in spherical tokamaks. Accordingly, by writing the system of particle and energy balance equations for this reaction in hot ion mode, we will investigate the effects of reactivities on plasma parameters in spherical tokamaks.
