When Farnsworth-HirschFusor was first introduced to the fusion research world in the late 1960s, the Fusor was the first device that could clearly demonstrate it was producing any fusion reactions at all. Hopes of the time were high that it could be quickly developed into a practical power source. However, as with other fusion experiments, development into generators has proven difficult. Fusion power is the technique of extracting net energy from a nuclear fusion reaction. Technically, most forms of power generation are indirectly fusion-powered.
Temperature required for thermonuclear reactions are in the millions of degrees Celsius. Cold fusion is technically the name for any nuclear fusion reaction that require several magnitudes less of heat than thermonuclear reactions (near room temperature and at standard atmospheric pressure).
