Re: EMC2 news

I have no idea of what would be currently the best crowdfunding platform as there are quite a few of them https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_crowdfunding_services . LPP Fusion has tried crowdfunding in 2014 and currently they have a campaign running. In 2014 they were able to raise $182,649...

Re: General Fusion in the news

General Fusion has put forward from the very start also the possibility of using only one plasma injector. With the self similar creation and compression of a spherical tokamak this is the only solution. GF has struggled with plasma impurities (like LPP Fusion). GF solved the issue with lithium coat...

Re: Lawaranceville E-Newsletter

LPPFusion has published their first paper on results using tungsten electrodes. They have improved the results, but only the beryllium experiments scheduled for next year will really tell what the performance really will be. https://lppfusion.com/lppfusion-publishes-world-record-fusion-results-leadi...

Re: Applied Fusion Systems to build prototype reactor in 3 years

Applied Fusion Systems has a homepage: http://appliedfusionsystems.com/ . They are planning to build spherical tokamaks like Tokamak Energy. https://appliedfusionsystems.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/unknown.jpeg?w=1472 This will pave the way for modern, smaller reactor design. Smaller is cheaper and ...
