A Short Route
to
FUSION
Cheap, Clean, Safe & Unlimited Energy
In the US, the median
person pays $1 in 6 for
energy
$9,000/year, $22 a day
Worldwide: $1 a
day for energy
$3 a day
total income
Total energy costs:
$ 5 trillion a year
Global rate of increase
in debt:
$5 trillion a year
7 Million Deaths Annually
from Fossil Fuel Pollution
What Is Fusion?
Tokamak
What Is Focus Fusion?
Controlled Nuclear Fusion
Within a
Dense Plasma Focus Device
Running on Aneutronic Fuel.
What Is Aneutronic Fusion?
It’s a fusion using aneutronic fuel, ideally made of hydrogen and
boron, pB11, which produces no neutrons and thus no
radioactive waste.
Aneutronic → No neutrons → No Radioactive waste
LPPHYSICS.COM
Direct energy conversion → No $$$ turbines
Why Is Aneutronic Fusion Cheap?
No neutrons → No Radioactive waste
Only Focus fusion leads to much cheaper
clean energy
―If you have another clean way to produce [energy]
at 2 to 10 cents per Kwhr, the world does not
change,‖ says Brian Wang. ―Only [with] LPP, if they
can get it down to 0.1 cent per Kwhr does the
world change.‖

REPRODUCING NATURAL INSTABILITIES
Solar Flares
Dense Plasma Focus :
small inexpensive device
Inside of FF-1’s Generator
Energy (X-rays, Ion Beams) Capture
Device
Where Are We?
Ion temperature— goal achieved —over
1.8 billion degrees, enough to ignite pB11
Confinement time— goal achieved 20 ns—
more than 8 ns goal
Energy transfer to plasmoid—
over 50% of goal
Density—must increase by 10,000
From NJ to your neighborhood
1 Year – conclude scientific feasibility
4 Years – for commercial generator
FF-X, 2018FF-1, 2015
Science Fiction?
Other physicists don’t think so
Safe
NO neutrons from main reaction
NO high energy neutrons
NO radioactive waste—electrodes contain
less radioactivity than a roomful of
people.
Generator safe to service without
protection 9 hours after turn-off
COSTS
For 5 MW generator, mass
production
$0.08-$0.20/W
Electric cost
Less than 0.3 cents/kwH
vs best today of 6 cents/kwH
Far Less Cost Than
Any Existing Source
Energy Benefits
17% increase in real income for median
US resident
44% increase in real income for median
person in the world
Distributed Power
5 MW generators, safe enough to
put in neighborhoods
far more reliability in disasters,
rapid deployment to towns and
villages throughout the world
JOBS, Services and Infrastructure
$5 TRILLION per year not
spent on energy
100-150 million new jobs
globally
Fusion for Peace
No more war to prop up the price of oil
Fission energy is obsolete—
lock up the uranium mines
Fusion for the Environment
End deadly pollution from coal, diesel, gasoline
End oil spills, mining devastation
Total recycling with plasma torch
Money released to end deforestation, environmental
clean-up,
No greenhouse gases
No radioactive waste
Fusion for the Environment

Space Exploration
A fusion rocket could get to Mars in
2 weeks
A multistage interstellar fusion
rocket could in theory attain 1/3
the speed of light
Steps To Increase Density
50x-- Achieve theoretical density—tungsten
electrodes to eliminate impurity
10x-- Increase current to 2.8 MA
20x-- Better compression with heavier pB11
Needed:
Beryllium electrodes
Tungsten is fine for impurity, but
absorbs too many x-rays
Beryllium far more transparent
But costs-- (single unit)--$250,000
Crowdfunding
Launch on Indiegogo April 22
Goal $250,000 (nice to get more!)
Need $1 million,
12 months to scientific feasibility
Need volunteers!
Need publicity—web, social media
Start online discussions everywhere
Goals:
100 by March 15
1,000 by April 22
Each one reach 3 in 3 weeks!
