Challenges to this approach include relatively low drive temperatures, resulting in slow implosion velocities and potentially large instability growth, and preheat caused by high-energy x-rays. Most recently, Winterberg has proposed the ignition of a deuterium microexplosion, with a gigavolt super-Marx generator, which is a Marx Generator driven by up to 100 ordinary Marx generators Inertial confinement fusion as an energy source Practical power plants built using ICF have been studied since the late 1970s when ICF experiments were beginning to ramp up to higher powers; they are known as inertial fusion energy, or IFE plants.

Any one of decay constant, mean lifetime or half- life is sufficient to characterise the decay. The notation λ for the decay constant is a remnant of the usual notation for an eigenvalue. In this case, λ is the eigenvalue of the opposite of the differentiation operator with N(t) as the corresponding eigenfunction. The units of the decay constant are s-1 . Derivation of the mean lifetime Given an assembly of elements, the number of which decreases ultimately to zero, the mean lifetime, τ, (also called simply the lifetime) is the expected value of the amount of time before an object is removed from the assembly.

Specifically, if the individual lifetime of an element of the assembly is the time elapsed between some reference time and the removal of that element from the assembly, the mean lifetime is the arithmetic mean of the individual lifetimes. e. the individual lifetime of a each object is exponentially distributed), which has a well-known expected value. We can compute it here using integration by parts. Decay by two or more processes A quantity may decay via two or more different processes simultaneously.
