Horne Technologies has superconducting IEC fusion device and hope for net power by 2020

• https://www.nextbigfuture.com, brian wang

They have 10 years research and development of fusion technologies. They have the first use of advanced REBCO superconducting wire in a plasma containment device. They have designed a record-breaking capable hybrid reactor.

– Superconducting REBCO coils capable of 0.5T ea.
– Operating pressure 1.0×10^-8 to 1 Torr
– Pumped liquid nitrogen cryogenic cooling
– Simple heating and measurement system
– 3A current injection

The path forward is simple:
– Scale up technology
– Demonstrate the world's most efficient device
– Calculate scale for break-even
– Build a full scale, power producing device

The second generation device will have
– Improved coil structure
– Liquid helium cooling
– Advanced plasma diagnostics
– Mitigation of the ion-ion thermalization loss mechanism
– Validation of all required technologies
– Final proof of concept
