Energy confinement time

Energy confinement time

(Science: radiobiology) characteristic time in which 1/e (or sometimes 1/2) of a systems energy is lost to its surroundings.

in a plasma device, the energy loss time (or the energy confinement time) is one of three critical parameters determining whether enough fusion will occur to sustain a reaction.

See: lawson criterion.
