Nuclear fusion power plant having a liquid reactor core of molten glass that is made laseractive and functions as a tritium breeding blanket which is capable of acousticly compressing/confining fuel so that it radiates and triggers outgoing laser cascades that will reflect from the blast chamber's spherical inside wall and return like photonic Tsunamis, crushing, heating, and causing thermonuclear ignition of the fuel so that heat engines and piezoelectric harvesters can convert the released energy into electricity

A nuclear fusion power plant having a spherical blast-chamber filled with a liquid coolant that breeds tritium, absorbs neutrons, and functions as both an acoustical and laser medium. Fuel bubbles up through the sphere's base and is positioned using computer guided piezoelectric transducers that are located outside the blast-chamber. These generate phase-shifted standing-waves that tractor the bubble to the center. Once there, powerful acoustic compression waves are launched. Shortly before these reach the fuel, an intense burst of light is pumped into the sphere, making the liquid laser-active. When the shockwaves arrive, the fuel temperature skyrockets and it radiates brightly. This, photon-burst, seeds outgoing laser cascades that return, greatly amplified, from the sphere's polished innards. Trapped within a reflecting sphere, squeezed on all sides by high-density matter, the fuel cannot cool or disassemble before thorough combustion. The blast's kinetic energy is absorbed piezoelectrically.

Device and method for the production of high-melting glass materials or glass ceramic materials or glass material or glass ceramic material

The invention relates to a device for the production of high-melting glass materials or high-melting glass ceramic materials, comprising a vessel for accommodating molten glass and a container that accommodates the vessel, whereby the vessel has a tubular outlet. According to the invention, the device is characterised by the fact that the vessel and a first section of the tubular outlet if formed of iridium or a material with a high iridium content, whereby the container is designed to accommodate the vessel and the first section of the tubular outlet under a protective gas atmosphere. The invention also relates to a corresponding method. The molten glass is shaped into a formed part in a discontinuous operation. The choice of the material for the vessel used as the crucible allows the attainment of high temperatures according to the invention which enables glass materials or glass ceramic materials with a much higher spectral transmission in the visible wavelength range. The use of an inert protective gas enables the prevention of unwanted oxide formation on the vessel and the tubular outlet. According to the invention, the glass can be used as a transitional glass between types of glass with very different coefficients of thermal expansion.
