Why Confinement is the key to
Commercially Viable Fusion
Commercially Viable Fusion (CVF) requires high energy gain. It is incontestable physics that the quality of confinement determines this energy gain. Incontestable. Decades of effort have gone by and no approach to controlled fusion has yet achieved the requisite high energy gain. Despite huge differences in approaches to fusion, all are united by one thing: if they haven’t shown high energy gain, it is because their confinement needs to be improved..
