Tokamak Energy has made impressive progress with their magnet technology as they are now licensing it to PSI:
Tokamak Energy is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Collaboration and License Agreement with the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) for the use of Tokamak Energy’s proprietary non-insulated high temperature superconducting (HTS) magnet technology for use in PSI’s accelerator and beam line applications.

Looks like their upgraded ST-40 is finally ready. Had first plasma the other day.
I guess we will know the results in a few months.

If with this upgraded ST40 they will be able to prove in certain way that the M-C heating theory works as expected it will boost a lot the confidence on the whole set up.

In the next few months, this device will achieve 100-million-degree plasma temperature, far beyond anything achieved by other private fusion ventures, and the temperature required for commercial fusion energy.
Hasn't LPP already announced that they had achieved two billion degrees?

Which is of less significance. Any schoolboy might get 100 megakelvins using lawn mower ignition coils in a fusor..

More important than temperature, the heart of their technology is the Merging Compression Heating system, and that has not yet been proven to work as expected in previous experimental runs.
