Alan is working on a new (transparent) reactor design.
The reactor will have Nickel electrodes with a decent current running between them.
A new heater coil design is also intended to create rapidly changing and opposing magnetic fields.
The core idea is to create a (dusty plasma) cloud of swirling particles, which will be exposed to ionised Hydrogen at high temperature.
We could really do with some help coming up with a suitable name for it.
