LPPFusion is a small New Jersey R and D firm with the ambitious goal of reaching and developing a new route to producing fusion energy, the energy that powers the sun. Their technology is called Focus Fusion.
In the past month, LPPFusion has published, in the leading peer-reviewed journal Physics of Plasmas, a new world record in confined ion energy, equivalent to 200 times the temperature at the center of the sun. https://www.lppfusion.com/lppfusion-publishes-world-record-fusion-results-leading-peer-reviewed-journal-physics-plasmas/
They also announced a new collaboration with the Center for Energy Research of the University of California, San Diego.
The $ 1 million dollars that the company hopes to raise through the crowdfunding camping will go to speed the scientific research by allowing the hiring of more researchers and by funding the next set of experiment. These experiments will use beryllium electrodes in the experimental FF-1 device and then proceed to the use of hydrogen-boron fuel. This fuel produces no radioactive waste. LPP Fusion has already raised more than half of their initial wefunder goal in a matter of a week.
