Re: A theory of a possible method of fusion

... project using a magnetron for open-air heating applications with rf susceptors, but this was under strict supervision with significant laboratory safety requirements. Again, not something to pursue without the strictest safety requirements in place. A much safer way of rf excitation if you wanted ...
