     Maybe the plasma folks should try to fire a thick  beam of deuterium 
ions (at 20 to 50 keV) at a pipe containing (cooled) deuterium  (D2) liquid.  
The whole system could be under vacuum and the deuterium ions  could be 
recycled and used again.  Or an aneutronic reaction could also be  tried.  
Resulting energetic produced reaction products could be captured in  water or 
whatever. and used to drive a turbine???
    Old style plasma physics fusion doesn't seem to be  producing net 
    Google pppl    or other plasma  labs.

I wrote a paper on  nuclear fusion energy in high school in 1963. It was
then, and still is  now, ten years away.
