It is great that Helion Energy has been able to collect 30 MUSD over the past three years. Having their team expanded to 24 persons sounds also good. But unless they really publish something solid there could be a risk that the cash flow dries up if they encounter unexpected problems with the machin...
The article is interesting with the claim that Helion Energy would have a break even capable device ready this year. Experiments with a new machine will take some time just to understand it and achieve previous results. It would be really nice to have a scientific paper from Helion Energy. If they h...
Here is another talk by Michl Binderbauer: On TAE’s Path to Fusion, A Private-Sector Perspective http://www.firefusionpower.org/NAS_Tri-Alpha_Binderbauer_022718.pdf.
EMC2 is part of this new Fusion Industry Alliance mentioned on the LPPFusion home page. The news article is rather scarce on details on this new alliance. Does anyone know something more about this?
They built Norman in about nine months, but because Copernicus is a much larger and more expensive device it will take also much more time to raise the needed money and to build it. It will also not fit on their current premises as it needs more infrastructure, so they will need to move. In the talk...
Hopefully this talk will be webcasted and also archived for later viewing as usually is the case at PPPL. For some reason the starting time has been changed to 9:30. Dr. Michl Binderbauer will give the talk On the Path to Clean Fusion Energy at PPPL on March 17, 2018, 9:00am to 11:00am. Hopefully a...
Thanks RERT. Of course the tokamak people are betting on their own horse and feel sceptical about the other concepts. This is of course justified as long as tokamaks are the best performing devices around. It will be interesting to see how the field develops and what kind of concept in the end will ...
The shape of the plasma is important for good stability and confinement in tokamaks. In Lausanne, Switzerland there is the TCV tokamak (Tokamak à Configuration Variable) which has extra magnets for tuning the shape of the plasma. This is used for studying the properties of different plasma shapes. H...

This is quite interesting for several reasons. Commonwealth Fusion Systems https://www.cfs.energy/ got their initial funding from one investor. The 50 MUSD investment is quite large for alternative fusion. The investor Eni is one of the largest energy companies in the world. This might have a positi...

Alan Boyle has written an article on TAE Technologies Norman experiments https://www.geekwire.com/2018/tae-technologies-pushes-plasma-machine-new-high-fusion-frontier/. The plasma lifetime on Norman has now exceeded that on C-2U.
