Magnetized Target Fusion system
  • Description of the forecast
  • Description of the implementation
General Fusion’s Magnetized Target Fusion system uses a sphere, filled with molten lead-lithium that is pumped to form a vortex.

On each pulse, magnetically-confined plasma is injected into the vortex. Around the sphere, an array of pistons impact and drive a pressure wave into the centre of the sphere, compressing the plasma to fusion conditions.

General Fusion has developed its technology from the beginning knowing that success requires more than solving science challenges. For General Fusion, success means delivering fusion energy with an approach that has a clear and practical path to commercially-viable and competitive power generation.

General Fusion’s system has three key advantages that allow for rapid and lower cost development, and a fast path to commercialization:

- A thick liquid metal wall
- A compressed gas driver
- No consumables

General Fusion is a Canadian company based in Burnaby, British Columbia, which was created for the development of fusion power based on magnetized target fusion (MTF). As of 2015 they were developing subsystems for use in a prototype to be built later. The company is funded by a variety of investors, including Chrysalix venture capital, the Business Development Bank of Canada—a Canadian Crown corporation, Bezos Expeditions, Cenovus Energy, GrowthWorks Capital, Khazanah Nasional—a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund, and Sustainable Development Technology Canada.
