New Fusion Industry Alliance Formed, LPPFusion Joins

American Fusion Project & Fusion Consortium

A dozen private fusion companies, including LPPFusion have joined together in an alliance to promote fusion and to try to get government funding for a broad-based approach to fusion. The new alliance consists of a few cooperating organizations—the American Fusion Project (AFP), which seeks to educate the public about the benefits of fusion energy and…

Microwave Power is Up, Testing Still Underway

Based on tests conducted in May, the LPPFusion research team decided that more microwave power was needed to clean the oxides off our tungsten electrodes. The oxides, which break up easily when heated, had been contributing impurities to the plasma and limiting fusion yield. We decided to mount two kW microwave magnetrons on a single…

Student Intern Helps to Unravel Ion Beams

The ion beams that FF-1 produces during a shot are an important feature of its operation. In the present experimental phase of our work, the energy of the ion beams give one measurement of the energy transferred into the tiny plasmoid that produces the fusion reactions. The current of the ion beams is also a…
