FFI (Focus Fusion 1), LPP’s experimental device, has achieved higher fusion yields than have been achieved with any other DPF at the same peak current.
Though remarkable, this yield is still 5 orders of magnitude short of the fusion yield required to prove scientific feasibility of focus fusion. How does the team hope to make up the difference?
The scaling still needs to be confirmed, but is based upon some of Lawrenceville Plasma Physics theories and some established theories.
How a Better than Breakeven Sequence Would Work
•A shot is fired.
•An initial current of 100,000 Joules enters the system.
•About 70,000 go toward generating the “pinch” and making fusion happen.
•The other 30,000 are not lost. They are recovered/recycled – stored in a second capacitor bank called the mirror capacitors that is charging up for the next shot.
•The 70,000 Joules in the pinch will theoretically yield 33,000 Joules of fusion-generated energy.
•70,000 + 33,000 gives us 103,000 Joules of energy to be recovered in the ion beam conversion device. 103,000 Joules from the ion beam conversion device + 30,000 recovered from the shot gives us 133,000 Joules.
•Less ~20% energy lost by inefficiencies and you end up with the 106,400 Joules.
•And, of course, “your mileage may vary”.
