New Fusion Startup CTFusion

Post by Skipjack »

CTFusion is a startup to commercialize the Dynomak, which was developed by Derek Sutherland and Thomas Jarboe at the University of Washington.
For those interested, it is a relatively compact Spheromak based concept with a comparably high beta.
Here is the presentation from the Fusion Power Associates Meeting last December:

Not much information available about the company yet and no website but Derek Sutherland's personal website mentions it and it is listed as an employer on his Linkedin page.

I find the Dynomak among the more compelling concepts for toroidal fusion reactors. They are relatively compact (3.8 m outer radius) and have a good beta.
