But of course, Richard, you are getting about 3e-5 (that's right 30 microwatts) peak, every time you get a fusion (2 MeV = about .3E-12 Joule/ 100 nSec fusion reaction time).

Actually, if you actually look at the time required to spit the neutron out, it might even be shorter. If it was a nanosecond, you could claim a PEAK power output of 3 milliwatts! *at a temperature of 11K deg/keV*20K volts = 220 million degrees...
