ARPA-E Requests Information on Enabling Technologies for a Commercially Viable Fusion Power Plant

ARPA-E is seeking information from diverse R&D communities, from both within and especially outside the fusion R&D community, about technological solutions and innovations that can enable commercially viable fusion power plants. While it is impossible to predict precisely what is needed for...

Re: Z-Pinch Renaissance

I wonder what the relative difficulty/cost of getting fusion neutrons from a Z-pinch machine is compared to getting them from a Hirsch-Farnsworth fusor. Is there any other confinement concept for which the barrier to entry is as low (or nearly so) as the fusor? (An accelerator, perhaps, but that's ...

Prospects for Low Cost Fusion Development

This documents reports on an ARPA-E sponsored JASON assessment of the “Prospects for Low Cost Fusion Development.” Specifically, the question is whether magneto-inertial fusion (MIF) is a promising approach toward achieving controlled thermonuclear fusion at dramatically lower costs than other appr...

Transient coaxial helical injection (CHI)

Transient coaxial helical injection (CHI) allows a tokamak to be started without a central solenoid. This seems to be rather interesting and promising.

The projects presented one page summary slides and posters during the meeting, but only the one page summaries are available on the home page. Apparently some kind of successor to ALPHA will be announced around September 2019. https://a...
