Beryllium Experiments Begin with FF-2B: Impurities Low, Yield Rising

After nearly a year of preparation, on June 4th LPPFusion’s research team started a new series of experiments using for the first time beryllium electrodes in a plasma focus device (Fig.1). Before starting, we renamed our device Focus Fusion 2B or FF-2B for short. The new name stands for Beryllium electrodes and Boron fuel—which we…

How We Prepared the New Experiment

  It took us five months of intensive work to assemble FF-2B with its new beryllium electrodes. The safety requirements of dealing with beryllium to ensure that none of us were exposed to beryllium dust was one safety concern that slowed us down. But in the process, we have succeeded in greatly upgrading our experimental…

LPPFusion’s Lerner to Speak at Fusion Energy Symposium On a Faster Route to Fusion

State House Annex, Trenton, NJ

Contacts: Ivy Karamitsos, (646) 515-8866, ivy@lppfusion.com Eric J. Lerner, (908) 546-7654, eric@lppfusion.com   LPPFusion President and Chief Scientist Eric J.

Final Stage of Assembly Begins

On January 28, 2019 we began the final stage of assembly of our new beryllium electrodes, transferring the beryllium anode into our nitrogen-filled glove box to protect us from any contact with beryllium dust and to protect the anode from water vapor and oxygen in the air. Inside the glove box, we will connect the…

Plans for the New Experiments

Since our new experiments will start soon, we thought this is a good time to summarize for everyone, including those who have only started following us recently, what our plans for the experiments are, what we hope to accomplish and why we think we can get good results. The basic plan is to increase the…
