Anode Installed, Switch Assembly and Testing Advance

The LPPFusion research team has been extremely busy preparing for our next experiments—too busy in fact to put out this report until now. (If you want more frequent updates, please follow us on Wefunder and Facebook.) Our first big milestone was installing our new...

Fusion Experts Urge “Much Higher Funding” for LPPFusion

Fusion Experts Urge “Much Higher Funding” for LPPFusion

“The attractiveness of a low power, low capital cost, and a ‘clean’ fusion power reactor system is worthy of continuing the research at a much higher funding level.” That is the key recommendation of an “Evaluation of LPPFusion Dense Plasma Focus Research”, a new...

Biden Infrastructure Plan Needs Fusion

Biden Infrastructure Plan Needs Fusion

President Biden’s infrastructure plan includes the goal of getting to no net carbon emission by 2050. The Fusion Industry Association (which LPPFusion is a member of) has proposed a way of making that goal practical—and even well exceeding it. The FIA is proposing a...

Anode Received, Re-Assembly to Start

Anode Received, Re-Assembly to Start

Our new beryllium anode stalk has arrived at LPPFusion’s lab in Middlesex, NJ. (See Fig. 1) The stalk, which will be installed at the very center of the FF-2B device, will carry the current from the intense current filaments as they converge and from the tiny plasmoid...

Ivy’s Dad Dead of Covid

We are sad to report that the father of LPPFusion CIO Ivy Karamitsos has died of Covid. Ljubodrag (Dragan) Zivkovic died in his sleep March 4 after a brief infection. He was 84. Dragan, a retired architect was living in Pancevo, Serbia and was an ardent core supporter...

I think that the “Focus Fusion” approach of Lawrenceville Plasma Physics, Inc. should be funded as the science behind it is very interesting. Even if this approach does not succeed in producing fusion energy, the research will produce valuable technology in the near term.

Bruno Coppi

Physics Professor & Senior Fusion Researcher, MIT

review committee of four senior scientists, led by the former head of the US government fusion program, concluded that “LPPFusion has made an impressive effort to address DPF physics and engineering issues given the limited number of personnel involved,” but that the “program is vastly underfunded and merits a much higher funding level.”

Review Committee

The experimental program that LPP plans to carry out has great potential to show how the plasma focus can be used to generate fusion energy and to demonstrate the feasibility of hydrogen-boron fusion. Read more…
