What technologies are covered by Helion Energy Patents?
Advanced Fuels: To address the challenges posed by deuterium-tritium fusion, which is Wall-Loading, researchers have explored the use of advanced fuels. These are alternative fuels for fusion reactions that may produce fewer high-energy neutrons or have other advantages. The goal is to find fuels that can mitigate the engineering difficulties associated with wall loading and potentially lead to a more efficient and practical fusion reactor.
“Plasma Confinement & Heating” patents talks about the concept of a fusion plasmoid, such as the Field Reversed Configuration (FRC), which is a plasma confinement concept. It is a specific magnetic configuration used in some fusion experiments and research devices to contain and stabilize high-temperature plasma for the purpose of achieving controlled nuclear fusion reactions.
Patents under “Magnetic Coil Technology” encompasses the development, design, and application of various types of magnetic coils. These fall within the category of technologies related to generating and controlling high-intensity magnetic fields.
The patents under “Materials & Coating” pertains to technologies and methods related to improving the materials and coatings used on the inner surfaces of particle containment chambers in fusion reactors or related devices.
