LPP looks back on 2010, ahead to fusion breakthrough in 2011


An overview of accomplishments, challenges, and goals for LPPhysics: Progress over the past year—Where are we and where are we going? You can find additional background with this report at the Focus Fusion Society. In this web write-up, we will be taking a longer view than our monthly reports, looking back over the entire past year’s…

Understanding Energy Possibilities at the Focus Fusion Solstice Seminar


The Somerset County Business Partnership will host Understanding Energy Possibilities: The Focus Fusion Solstice Seminar, a presentation focused on how private research start-up Lawrenceville Plasma Physics (LPP) is using innovation to develop an operational method for providing clean, inexhaustible fusion power. LPP has already achieved record relative fusion yields at their “Focus Fusion-1” lab in…

Progress and a Good Report


Summary: Experiments this month gave further confirmation of our basic theoretical model of the DPF. ICCD images showed the pinched filament kinking into a plasmoid and gave us clearer estimates of the plasmoid radius and density. X-ray emission energy continues to increase, giving us more confidence for our spin-off X-ray generator applications. Our replacement trigger heads…

Reliable Firing Achieved

Shot 9-09-10-02

Firing all switches repeatedly and reliably On September 29, we finally achieved repeatable firing of all attached capacitors. That day, and on September 30 and October 1, we fired all eight attached capacitors in 11 successive shots with only three pre-fires. While last month we thought that we had the switch problem under control, we had…
