I'm aware that a D-T plasma is used most widely for Nuclear fusion reactioms, however I was wondering if someone could possibly point me towards some alternative fuels for Nuclear Fusion?

This can be either be: alternative sources of D and T or alternative light element suggestions?

I think the only practical way to do fusion here is with those isotopes of hydrogen. I would suggest asking on the physics page though as they'll know better.
