Abstract: The presentation focuses on particle/power sources, thermonuclear reactors and applications of nuclear fu-sion plasmas and magnetic systems. Axially symmetric open or closed magnetic traps with open ends are very attractive systems from the engineering view point due to its simplicity. The open field lines in the edge region of many alternate configurations also allow the use of direct conversion of charged-particle fusion power to electricity at high efficiency. A nuclear fusion power plant based on an open system might, therefore, possess sufficient commercial attractiveness for the production of energy. Other sources of neutrons and protons will be also discussed in the presentation. One of them is the IEC (Inertial Electrostatic Confinement) radiation source for tokamak materials testing. Such a radiation source can be used to perform cutting-edge materials research, non-destructive analysis, and the training of personnel. Laser-driven magnetic flux compression and plasma liner magneto-inertial fusion will also be presented.
