An ultrahigh vacuum stainless-vessel including only solid samples is used as a “Solid Fusion” vessel. When extremely high purity D2 gas is injected into this stainless-vessel, D2 gas is penetrated into the solid sample as “D+-jet stream” and “Solid Fusion” is generated instantly with 42He and thermal energy as the reaction products. Consequently, the stainless vessel can act as both a “42He generator” and a “Thermal Reactor”. As a result, and excellent actual “Solid Fusion” reactor is established for the first time in the world.
