Youtube thought I'd like this:

Nicely done "Verge Science" video on TAE and deep learning.

Michl Binderbauer will talk at SOFE 2019 on Development of fusion technologies and their application at TAE .

28th IEEE Symposium on Fusion Engineering, 2 – 6 June, 2019, Sawgrass Marriott Resort,1000 PGA Tour Boulevard, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida 32082 USA

Paper accompanying Michael Binderbauer's presentation at the 28th IEEE Symposium on Fusion Engineering:
https://indico.cern.ch/event/749923/con ... -03-19.pdf
Seems like Norman is finished already?

I would not say finished, but enough information that Copernicus engineering and plans have been initiated.

BTW, thank you for the links, looks like Helion and TAE are a go, General Fusion should be a go, but I had thought that PI3 was finished. Looks like they are still testing, which might explain why demo has not been green lighted (I had blamed that delay on the mini-me compression design testing).

Polywell...LM... better get a move on.

I am somewhat disappointed that Copernicus will only demonstrate 10 keV ion temperatures. 116 million degrees does not seem all that much. Tokamak Energy is going to do about the same with their current prototype and Helion presumably reached 8 keV with their last prototype (at least that was the goal for "Venti" during the ARPA-E Alpha program). From what I know about Helion's approach, they should at least be aiming for at least 35 keV with their current prototype in order to achieve Q>1.

Cost. It does what they need it to do, it gives them engineering data. $200 million is nothing to sneeze at for Zero megawatts. They would not spend it unless the cat was in the bag based on Norman. Norman showed they can scale Temperature, control the plasma, achieve lifetime.

Of course if you have the money I am sure they would build you a bigger one. :D

TAE Technologies has published a new paper: Formation of Hot, Stable, Long-Lived Field-Reversed Configuration Plasmas on the C-2W Device , Nucl. Fusion 59 (2019) 112009 (16pp).

They have also published two new patent applications: Systems and methods for merging and compressing compact tori and Systems and methods for forming and maintaining a high performance frc .

So my take away is that C2-W is performing OK, but they want to upgrade it one more time before we can see the anticipated results for this machine. They are sure are not moving as quickly as they (and we) originally hoped they would.

Latest results from Norman:
30 ms steady state plasma, 400 eV electron temperature.
From what I understand they have a density of 5x10^12 to 5x10^14 cm^-3.
That is OKish, but not Earth shattering. I was honestly expecting a bit more, especially temperature wise, but maybe they will push it further.
