- LPP at Google Solve for X Fusion Brainstorming conference—still leading the field
- Moving the goal posts closer: quantum “herding” may allow net energy with not-quite-so-high density
- Monolithic cathode planned to achieve plasma purity, higher density
LPP leads the field at Google Solve for X Fusion Brainstorming conference
On June 11, 2013, LPP participated in Google’s Solve For Fusion Brainstorming Conference in Mountainside, California. Solve For X encourages projects to solve the toughest technological challenges of our day. The participants were scientists from Lawrenceville Plasma Physics, Inc. and three other leading fusion energy research companies: Tri-Alpha Corporation, General Fusion, and a project supported by giant multinational Lockheed-Martin. Teams of three presenters from each participating company were joined by a panel of nine fusion experts from top academic and national fusion laboratories: Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, MIT, the University of Wisconsin, and UCLA.
