Yet another small fusion start-up

This forum is for other possible methods for fusion such as Sonolumenescense, Cold Fusion, CANR/LENR or accelerator fusion. It should contain all theory, discussions and even construction and URLs related to "other than fusor, fusion".

Yet another small fusion start-up

Post by Justin Fozzard » Wed Oct 31, 2018 9:57 am

I found this website (linked via a nuclear news site) that shows yet another (and probably doomed) approach to fusion. They seem to be trying a re-hash of a dense plasma focus mixed with shock wave compression.

I saw a good critique of similar schemes a few years ago that pointed out that any useful pulsed fusion device would be like trying to confine the equivalent of several Kg of TNT exploding over a hundred times every second. It will be interesting to see how this new scheme develops.

Oh, for some funding for my best (daft) ideas!

Pulsed fusion is what I term putt-putt boat fusion. This typically savages the vessel and its components and rivals the attempt to power a city from lightning strokes. Maintenance issues abound as a source of over unity fusion designed to deliver reliable 24-7-365 electricity.

In the end, this is still a heat a bunch of water to drive a turbine scheme.
