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 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.
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.
