Another Large Dense Plasma Focus Nuclear Fusion System

Focusfusion.org reports Chris Hagen of National Security Technologies announced for the first time an operational project in Las Vegas, Nevada to use large Dense Plasma Focus (DPF) fusion as neutron sources for testing purposes. National Security Technologies had built in 2008 a 500 kiloJoule Dense Plasma Focus called Tallboy that produced 3 MA (million amps) …

Focus Fusion Dense Plasma Focus Project Has Started Test Firing

After seven years of theoretical work and raising money, five months of design, five months of construction and assembly, and a week of testing, LPP (Lawrenceville Plasma Physics) now has a functioning dense plasma focus, Focus-Fusion-1. The first shot, using helium as the fill gas, was achieved at 5:29 PM today, Oct.15, and the first …

National Ignition Facility Funding is at Risk

NY Times – the National Ignition Facility, uses 192 lasers to fire light beams at tiny targets, smaller than peppercorns, filled with hydrogen atoms. After spending more than $5 billion to build and operate a giant laser installation the size of a football stadium, the Energy Department has not achieved its goal of igniting a …

Previous Dense Plasma Focus Research

There was work (37 page pdf) done by Jan S. Brzosko, “High Efficiency Plasma Focus: Fusion and Applications” which showed 500 repeated firings of a Dense Plasma Focus (DPF) device (H/T Culled from links at Focusfusion.org which collected this and other relevant research) This is related to the work of Lawrenceville plasma Focus to develop …
