A study by an international team of researchers claims to have found a way to generate electricity through nuclear fusion.

The team, led by Heinrich Hora, professor at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has shown through computational studies that a special fuel ignited by brief but powerful pulses of laser energy may be the answer to a problem that has confounded physicists for long.

The beam would ignite a fuel made of light hydrogen and boron-11, which would be largely free of radioactive emissions and release more than enough energy to generate electricity. The study was published in Energy and Environmental Science.
