Welcome to the Focus Fusion
The goal of the Focus Fusion
Society is to help
to develop an environmentally safe, cheap, and
unlimited energy source. We will do this by funding
research into hydrogen-boron fusion using the plasma focus device.

|May 28, 2002. A team of researchers has announced the achievement
for the first time of temperatures above one billion degrees in a dense plasma. The
breakthrough, achieved with a compact and inexpensive device called the plasma focus, is a
step toward controlled fusion energy using advanced fuels that release little or no
radioactivity. "We have achieved a key condition needed to burn hydrogen-boron
fuel," said Eric J. Lerner of Lawrenceville Plasma Physics, one of the researchers.
"This fuel produces virtually no radioactivity and can potentially generate electric
energy without expensive steam generators and turbines."
