Machining challenges lead to new cathode design

FoFuNeedsDentalWork

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!

Approved-green

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…

DPF collaboration formed

LPP Fusion LOGO

On Sept. 17, fifteen experienced DPF researchers from Europe, Asia and the United States met at a workshop in Warsaw, Poland, and agreed to set up a closer web-based collaboration network. The workshop was organized by the International Scientific Committee of the International Centre for Dense Magnetized Plasmas, a group of several dozen DPF researchers….
