LPP Fusion Solve Two Main Nuclear Fusion Engineering Problems

New simulations show what might be a solution of the current oscillation problem that LPPFusion’s research team has been struggling to solve since mid-2019. These oscillations are the most likely cause of the disruption of current filaments that have in turn limited fusion yield.

LPP also completed the new design for the anode. They have now addressed both engineering problems that confronted the project in the spring.

Experiments over the next few weeks will confirm if these are successful solutions to aspects of the problems.

More equipment is needed and LPP will have new switches before actually firing FF-2B in the new experimental run in 2021.

In November 10, 2019, LPPFusion’s efforts to reduce troublesome oscillations in our FF-2B experimental fusion device had started to make progress. On October 21, they cut the highest-frequency oscillations in half, and increased fusion yield by 30% over our best previous shot with FF-2B. This puts fusion energy yield at 1/8 joule (one joule is one watt-second). This was 3000 times more than the yield at TAE Technologies.
