Aneutronic Fusion

The conditions forced to harness aneutronic fusion are more extreme than those essential for the conventional deuterium–tritium (DT) nuclear fuel cycle. Successful aneutronic fusion would reduce problems associated with neutron radiation like ionizing damage, neutron activation and requirements for neurological shielding, remote handling as well as safety. Aneutronic fusion is any kind of fusion power in which neutrons carry at most 1% of the overall released energy.
