LPP Fusion Reports Ion Energy Records, Other Progress to International Plasma Symposium

LPP Fusion’s President and Chief Scientist Eric Lerner reported on June 21 new record ion energies of over 260 keV (equivalent to a temperature of over 2.8 billion degrees K) to 150 plasma scientists assembled in Prague, Czech Republic for the 27th International Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology. The new results, obtained with the…

Fusion Yield Up Almost 50% as FF-1 Resumes Firing

Six weeks after resuming firing, FF-1’s fusion yield reached 0.25 J on May 23, a nearly 50% increase over the highest-yield shot previously achieved with this device. This increase, confirmed by a second shot on May 24, provides the most concrete evidence yet that our continuing effort to reduce impurities in FF-1 increases fusion yield….

Where FF-1 Places in the Fusion Race

Many people have asked where exactly FF-1’s results stand in relation to much better-funded efforts, such as the privately-funded Tri Alpha and General Fusion or the government-funded tokamaks. So we prepared these  charts to summarize the present situation in the “fusion race.” The first chart compares the plasmas that each device creates, using a measure…

At the end of December, 2015 LPPFusion was notified that it was awarded Canadian Patent 2,642,749. The patent is essentially identical to the basic patent already awarded in the US, Australia and China and extends to the year 2027. The only pending foreign patent applications are for the European Union and India. LPPF’s research team…

Vacuum Chamber gets Titanium Nitride Coating, New Window as Tests Near

As preparations for the next set of experiments accelerate, LPPFusion has received the newly coated vacuum chamber parts back from suppliers in Ohio and NJ. The parts have been coated with titanium nitride in order to minimize the oxygen in the chamber. On the one hand, the coating will act as a sponge soaking up…

Titanium Lining for Vacuum Chamber

To download this report click here Based on the results of test shots fired in September, LPPFusion’s research team has decided to line the vacuum chamber of the device with titanium or a titanium compound. While we cleaned oxides off the tungsten, these compounds have reappeared due to oxygen in the stainless steel chamber. After…
