Early Shots Show Impurities Dropping, But Not Yet Enough For High Fusion Yields


With just a dozen shots performed so far, we can draw only very preliminary conclusions from our results. The first is that impurities do indeed seem to have dropped significantly with the new electrodes—the first main goal of the new experiments. Impurities appear to be the basic obstacle to high fusion yields, as they disrupt…

Permission Obtained for Beryllium Electrodes Import

We have now obtained US Department of Commerce permission to import the cylindrical beryllium billets we will need for our next set of electrodes. The beryllium electrodes will be needed in later stages of our experi-mental program, as the x-ray flux from our plasmoid becomes too intense for the tungsten electrodes. Beryllium is far more…
