- As we enter the new millennium there is a growing urgency to address the issue of finding long-range solutions to the world's energy needs. Fusion offers such a solution, provided economically viable means can be found to extract useful energy from fusion reactions. While the magnetic confinement approach to fusion has a long and productive history, to date the mainline approaches to magnetic confinement, namely closed systems such as the tokamak, appear to many as being too large and complex to be acceptable economically, despite the impressive progress that has made toward the achievement of fusion-relevant confinement parameters. Thus there is a growing feeling that it is imperative to search for new and simpler approaches to magnetic fusion, ones that might lead to smaller and more economically attractive fusion power plants.
