Larecneville Plasma Physics, founded in 1974, is an advanced research, consulting and
communication firm specializing in applications of plasma physics, especially fusion
Our main research projects since 1987 has been the development of a dense plasma
focus(DPF) fusion reactor, using proton-boron (pB11) fuel. In the course of this project,
- Developed a detailed theory of function of DPF.
- Designed experiments to test theory of heating in DPF.
Designed electrodes, experimental plan, participated in carrying out experiment, analyzed
data. Experiment carried out at University of Illinois 1994-95, funded by Jet Propulsion
- Designed experiment to test hypothesis that Dense Plasma
Focus could achieve temperatures needed for proton-boron fusion. Developed theoretical
model, designed electrodes, designed diagnostic equipment, including x-ray detector and
filters, Rogowski coil. Actively participated in experiment including selection of
experimental parameters, construction of heating apparatus for decaborane functioning.
Analyzed resulting data. Demonstrated achievement of 200keV energies (equivalent to 2
billion K). Experiment carried out 2001 at Texas AM University, funded by Jet Propulsion
- Developed theory of intense magnetic field effects that show
the feasibility of proton-boron fusion.
- Other projects have included the research on Atomizing
Desalination Process, an economical alternative to current methods of desalination.
- LPP also provides consulting services and generation of
