Re: General Fusion in the news

Yes, I guess you are right in that the 500 eV is for the combination of injection and compression. But it is still for the small injector so the results for the corresponding big injector will be interesting to see. Here is an article An interview with Bruce Colwill , Chief Financial Officer at Gene...

Re: General Fusion in the news

No, it is the difference between private and government. GF is doing only what is needed to prove their design in integrated form. ... -going to a full size plasma injector (they are at 500ev and need to go to 10kev, if I am understanding the status correctly), The goal for the plasma injector has ...

• Prototype goal: achieving fusion conditions (10 keV), sub-breakeven

Well that is rather disappointing, isn't it?


It is better to have realistic and achievable milestones that you can meet, than to have too ambitious goals and fail to meet them. Small steps forward are also a good thing.

Re: General Fusion in the news

Speaking about TriAlpha, yes, boron is a huge bar to jump, but I consider TA a success if they can reach sustained fusion conditions with deuterium. But that is me. I imagine the C-2W machine might show that, or near enough. I think C-2W will ignite the race to commercial for all parties. The high ...

Re: General Fusion in the news

Comparing the different fusion companies is rather difficult as they are in different stages and in some cases target different goal. TAE has a much longer road ahead because they aim for pB11 compared to GF which aims for DT. TAE has been able to rebuild and upgrade their devices with a fast pace l...
