General Fusion hopes to create small fusion reactors that cost around $50 million a piece and generate roughly 100 megawatts allowing for roughly 4 cent / kwh electricity.

Evidence of fusion products in acoustically driven MTF

How it Works

Colliding plasmas within a sphere of liquid metal. A spherical shockwave within the liquid metal causes the plasma to collapse. At maximum compression the conditions for fusion are briefly met and a fusion burst occurs releasing its energy. -- Matt Musson (no relationship to company February 11, 2008)

Overview of Magnetized Target Fusion

On April 03, 2008, Doug Richardson wrote.

As a general background/overview I suggest the papers attached.


GF_provenance.doc - General Fusion is a Vancouver-based company which believes it can achieve Net Gain from fusion in a relatively quick time and sufficiently small equity dollars to make it an attractive investment.

MTF POP proprosal, incl comments on sphero feas.pdf - Magnetitezed Target Fusion: A Proof-of-Principle Research Proposal Submitted to the Office of Fusion Energy Sciences May 19, 1998 Schoenberg and Siemon.

MTFforenergy.pdf - The relevance of Magnetized Target Fusion (MTF) to practical energy production A white paper for consideration by the fusion community and the Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Committee May 15, 1999 R. Siemon, et al.

Regarding current MTF status the world leader is likely Los Alamos National Lab and their cooperation with the Air Force Research Labs.

For more papers and background this site has more information.

MTF is often associated with compact torus investigations (you need a target to squish). Work on MTF and compact torus is being done at these locations:

Los Alamos National Lab

Lawrence Livermore National Lab - SSPX

University of Washington - PHD

University of Wisconsin – plasma jets

Caltech - spheromak

UC Davis - CTIX

Princeton - MRX

Swarthmore College - SSX

Air Force Research Labs

Hyper-V – private company

Woodruff Scientific –private company

MNSW – private company

MTF is contained within the Innovative Concepts designation of fusion. Here is a link to a budget request presentation of the Office of Fusion Energy Sciences (gives a summary of most of the innovative concepts and MTF research).

And a link to the proceeding from related conference.

Regarding GF getting of the ground…I have attached a “narrative? produced by our Chairman.

Magnetized Plasma Fusion Reactor Patent Pending


Company: General Fusion, Inc.

General Fusion is working on a new, patent pending concept based on a recent development in fusion research called Magnetized Target Fusion (MTF). MTF has been building momentum in the fusion community for a few years now. It is the goal of General Fusion to demonstrate this new clean, safe and economical concept by 2010.
