Deuterium/helium-3 fusion reactors with lithium seeding

reactors [2]. We propose to use a D/3He y/6Li x plasma as the original fuel, where x and y are the ratio of the lithium and helium to the sum of deuterium and helium particle numbers in the initial pellet, respectively. In other words, the fuel is mainly made of deuterium and helium, with a small seeding of lithium.
