Energy is the basis of societal progress. But it’s also crucial that we develop cheap and sustainable energy technologies that are readily available to every single citizen. How is this possible? Fusion Energy – it is the goal of the Focus Fusion Society.
This year we are raising money to fund our simulation work on Dense Plasma Focus (DPF) system, a type of reactor currently a focus of the Focus Fusion team. Why do we need to simulate it? By simulating the fusion process, we could more quickly and cheaply explore various plasma parameters that are manipulatable in a reactor. This way, we could work toward discovering the most efficient conditions for fusion.
For quite a few years, Dr. Warwick Dumas has worked on a 2D Dense Plasma Focus simulation. Thanks to his work, we can actually simulate plasma up to the 240-nanosecond mark. However, that’s just the beginning. The next step is taking a closer look at plasma behaviour at precisely 350 nanoseconds. That’s what our Chief Scientist, Eric Lerner, is eager to discover.
To get us there, we need to continue funding Dr. Warwick’s simulation work. You can help us in this year-end fundraising push!
Our goal: 12,000 USD. This would enable us to finish the necessary simulation work to push up to the 350-nanosecond mark.
Our stretch goal: 15,000 USD. If we reach this goal, we could produce a series of YouTube videos that informs every curious viewer, in reasonably simple form, exactly how the simulation process works.
And an added bonus: if you contribute, your donation will be tax deductible in the USA.
Thank you for helping us continue our vital fusion work!
