For those who haven't bothered to read MSNW's presentation, you might find these quotes fairly interesting:
Design of the FDR Breakeven Proof of Concept Experiment
PHD experiment with some of the 1.75 MJ, ±25 kV
capacitor modules shown in the foreground.
• More than sufficient bank energy for G~1 experiment
• Equipment becomes available in July 2012
Anticipated Parameters from FDR Validation Experiment
• Final FRC parameters yield a fusion gain G = 1.6 (MsubL=0.18 kg Al)
"Experimental demonstration of fusion gain with inductively driven metal liners" — Hope to publish in the near future!
He's not being very subtle, is he?
I'm not sure why he uses G instead of Q.
