Laser-driven fusion that produces 'absolutely clean' energy could be possible within a decade, experts say



Researchers have outlined what they say could be the most feasible technique yet to achieve fusion energy.
The latest approach would fuse hydrogen and boron using powerful bursts of lasers – and could do away with the need for radioactive fuel or its toxic waste.
While the process would require extreme temperatures which have been difficult to achieve to date, at about 200 times the temperature of the sun’s core, physicists now say recent advances in laser technology could make it possible.
