I like that they are able to use Deuterium as a fuel, instead of Deuterium and Tritium. That makes the device a lot more attractive. It is not as attractive as PB11, but probably the next best thing. At least they don't have to worry about breeding tritium. They might get that as a side effect, though with a few D+T side reactions also happening, which will increase the neutron radiation created by the device. Since it is pulsed, the D+T side reactions might not be so bad however, if they remove the T after every shot. Still, they will have to handle that and I do have to wonder about the lifetime of the device because of that. On the other hand it seems pretty cheap and compact in nature. So replacing it every so often could be possible.
Is there anyone here who can poke holes into their concept? I am still a bit skeptical, overall, but more optimistic than I was when I first saw it.

Look, induction motors work that way and resistance heating from induced current is a major issue. I'll believe they can get practical fusion when they get net fusion without compressor meltdown. Just saying.
Near term, cheap, dark horse fusion hits the air waves, GF - TED, LM - Announcement. The race is on.

Here is a page that details the DARPA funding that Sorlox has obtained. . This is rather similar to the Polywell reports ...

Sorlox has a web page in South Korea too: .
The layout of the website is different from the US website. Almost all text is in Korean, with only a few words in English, so it is impossible to understand without understanding Korean. Google translate is not very helpful on that site. Still it is interesting to see that Sorlox has some activities also in South Korea.
