The Pacific Energy Innovation Association invited General Fusion Founder and Chief Scientist Dr. Michel Laberge to present an overview of new developments in fusion as part of its public lecture series on September 12, 2018.
With good confinement and relatively high beta (up to 40%), the spherical tokamak could be a suitable magnetized target. To illustrate this potential, the theoretical fusion yield from compressing a spherical tokamak adiabatically to fusion conditions is calculated.
This poster was presented at the 19th International Congress on Plasma Physics (2018) and provides an overview of helicity balance models and data analysis in the SPECTOR spherical tokamak plasmas.
TRIUMF, Canada's particle accelerator centre, invited General Fusion Principal Scientist Dr. Peter O'Shea to present an overview of new developments in fusion as part of its public lecture series on November 18, 2017.
