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 ...

Re: General Fusion in the news

This is quite a big announcement. There are also interesting things going on elsewhere. Tokamak Energy will soon get their ST40 device ready. LPP Fusion will switch to their beryllium electrodes in a few months time and the results with that will be interesting to see. TAE is working with their late...

I admit that I have looked every now and then to see if the current patent application has been accepted, but I have not found any news on that. I have also not found any new patent application.
