The Focus Fusion Society presents the Fall 2010 webinar update on the Lawrenceville Plasma Physics (LPP) focus fusion feasibility experiment.

Is a fusion breakthrough just a few months away? While originally presented as part of LPP’s capital drive, these videos contain just the science and technical information from the webinar so that a broader audience can benefit from learning about the latest developments. Contact LPP directly (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) for business-related matters. Recorded September 30th.

All thanks to Derek Shannon for putting the webinar together and for editing them to be web ready. 

Remember that the Focus Fusion Society needs your support now to make sure more people can get informed, involved, and benefit sooner from diverse approaches to clean fusion energy.

Just at the tail end of Eric’s remarks in part 3, before the Q&A, he indicates that the excellent result obtained that a.m. can be expected to get even better when the axial field generator is back online. (Which happened, I gather, later that day.)  So I assume that even as we speak, even better things are happening!

Eric and coworkers, thanks for your latest four videos
they are perhaps your most cogent effort for the moderately informed audience. Q1.I am assuming the plugs have a common ground, is it possible that if both the positive and negative poles of each plug were activated simultaneously by their own conductors there might better timing control? I know that might mean a different plug configuration! Q2. Is the axial field coil effect able to be adjusted by user input?
          Thank you for all your good work

I’m not up on plugs, but there are numerous statements about adjusting the axial coil; it’s not even a very strong field. It was initially noticed that the Earth’s mag field was imparting a twist, and the suggestion (by Aaron, I believe) was that making your own and tuning it would work better.  And so it is, it seems!

great videos!
looking forward for more
