I just read the previous threads about FPGeneration and about POPS, in general. POPS is essentially a pulsed bias such that you have an oscillating plasma sheath. POPS is interesting to me because it reminds me of a specialized coating process technology called Plasma Source Ion Immersion (PSII).

The similarity between these two techniques also explains why all of the guys I met at Los Alamos in 1997 who were working on PSII deposition of diamond-like carbon coatings were all ex-fusion researchers. We visited these guys while I was working for a Japanese equipment maker (called Nanotec). We wanted to develop PSII coating technology because of its vast market potential for DLC coatings onto many different materials.

The vacuum chamber they were using to develop the PSII process (with a bunch of GM piston heads in it) was used previously for fusion research. They had worked on something they called a spheromak (if I remember correctly), but had their funding cut because it conflicted with the Almighty tokamak and ITER, which they told me has zero chance of working.

Anyways, nanotec developed the PSII process, although it took them 5 years to do it. I think Nanotec could develop and build these IEC fusion devices that Bussard's group and others are working on.
