Tungsten anode has arrivedMay 8, 2014
The first of LPP’s new tungsten electrodes, the anode, or inner electrodes, is now complete and has arrived at our Middlesex, NJ lab. The electrode will contribute to greatly reducing the impurities that have prevented high density in our fusion-generating plasmoids. First, it connects to the rest of the circuit outside the vacuum chamber, eliminating any possibly of internal arcing. Second, it is made of pure tungsten, a material that far better resists vaporization than our old copper electrodes.
The much larger and more complex outer electrode, or cathode, is being machined into shape at NJ Precision Machining and is now expected to be finished by late June.
