Fusion product

The fusion product is the characteristic parameter for an ignited fusion plasma, in which the temperature of the plasma is maintained solely by the heating from the helium nuclei released. According to the Lawson criterion this requires that the product T n tauE of the temperature T, density n and energy confinement time tauE be in excess of 3 x 1021 keV s m-3.
