Studying performance of polarized 3He gas in polymer pellets, a first step towards spin-polarized thermonuclear fusion

The energy output of a fusion reactor can be increased by using spin-polarized fuels. We will study performance of polarized 3He gas in pellets as a possible method of fuel delivery for reactors.
