Beryllium Cathode Nears Completion

Hardric Labs in Massachusetts has reported to LPPFusion that its work on machining the new beryllium cathode (fig.4) is nearing completion and they expect to ship the finished piece in early March, only a few weeks behind their initial schedule. Since the beryllium anodes have already been received at the Middlesex NJ lab, we will…

New Experiment Starts: Optimizing Microwave Treatments to Reduce Oxide Impurities

Microwave Treatment Glowing Plasma

Focus Fusion-1, LPPFusion’s experimental fusion device, resumed firing January 30 to start our final set of experiments with tungsten electrodes. Our initial results showed that we still need more work to reduce the tungsten oxides that have fed impurities into our plasma. We are now optimizing the microwave treatments that can strip oxygen off the…

Where FF-1 Places in the Fusion Race

Many people have asked where exactly FF-1’s results stand in relation to much better-funded efforts, such as the privately-funded Tri Alpha and General Fusion or the government-funded tokamaks. So we prepared these  charts to summarize the present situation in the “fusion race.” The first chart compares the plasmas that each device creates, using a measure…
