LPPF’s paper ranked #1 most- read in 2012


On March 6, Physics of Plasmas, the leading international journal for fusion scientists, released a “ Listing of the Most Read Articles in 2012 Published in Physics of Plasmas”. The number one article, most read out of the thousand published by the journal, was not from a giant national laboratory nor a large university group. No, it was “Fusion reactions from >150…

New theoretical insights explain super-hot plasmoids


New theoretical work shows how FF-1 gets ions to 1.8 billion C.  Iranian group- independently confirms LPP theory (Apologies for length of this important item!) Theoretical insights and calculations by LPP’s Chief Scientist Eric Lerner and our new summer graduate student, Ahmad Talaei of Utah State University, as well as work by an independent group…

Machining challenges lead to new cathode design


Will new “Fusion Crown” make FoFu-1 king of clean energy? Time will tell, but in any case “The Teeth that Chew the Sheath” are getting an updgrade! Since FoFu-1’s ceramic insulator broke in late January, damaging the nearby cathode base, we’ve been working to make the ceramic more robust while also improving the cathode design…
