Motivated by recent advances in the production of intense ion beams, we consider the possible utility of such beams for heating a long thin ϑ‐pinch plasma to thermonuclear temperatures. It is found that ion beams offer an alternative to previously proposed schemes utilizing CO2 laser beams and intense relativistic electron beams.
