On February 28 Lawrenceville Plasma Physics’ (LPP) experimental plasma focus device was fired and the team observed a record 380 Gigawatts (GW) of peak power in the ejected ion beam.  The most powerful beam previously observed had a peak power of 93 GW making the newest beam measurement a four-fold improvement. To provide context for […]

Eric Lerner and his team at Lawrenceville Plasma Physics (LPP) cleared a significant hurdle in the quest for fusion beyond the breakeven of more power out than consumed using Focus Fusion. Focus Fusion has now come to the billion-degree plasma temperature that yields the confinement of ions with energies in excess of 100 keV, the […]
