With the new method of efficient plasma sustainment  IDCD, we are able to pursue the most promising variety of fusion to date, steady-state magnetic fusion energy.

We use what we have learned over decades of research as a community to our advantage at CTFusion, and apply the necessary innovations to make magnetic fusion energy economically competitive with conventional power sources.

A breakthrough discovery in efficient plasma sustainment enables more compact, economical reactors than previously possible. 

Our process, called imposed-dynamo current drive (IDCD), sustains a compact, stable spheromak plasma.

Our Key Technology

Our plasma sustainment system uses inductive helicity injectors that are operated in different ways to control plasma dynamics.

IDCD can be performed in steady-state, and does not require performance degrading plasma instabilities.
