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…

Acceptance to Physics of Plasmas confirms LPP is hot!


Acceptance of latest results to Physics of Plasmas confirms this energy start-up is hot! One point eight billion degrees. Yes, that’s billion with a “b,”  LPP’s team received word February 27th that a paper describing our achievement of fusion reactions from ions confined at energies equivalent to over 1.8 billion degrees C was accepted by Physics of…

2011 achievements and goals for 2012

LPP Report

LPP is proud to highlight the main developments of the past year, and the next steps we intend to take in completing the research phase in 2012. To review, in 2010 we achieved two key goals—confirming the generation of ion energies of over 100 keV (one billion degrees) and increasing the efficiency of energy transfer…
