The Zplasma only claims more energy, not more power. So it's still too slow.

It's hardly a breakthrough, it doesn't offer extra power (energy/time). Energy confused with power.

There's also a coarseness problem, where now you're dealing with resist outgassing, crosslinking and even ablation at J/cm^2 instead of mJ/cm^2.

It is very impressive these advancements that we are currently having in the area of nuclear fusion research, hopefully soon everything will become reality in order to make a better world. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro5-QYqqxzM

Nuclear fusion plasmas are deuterium, which don't emit EUV.

In fact, the group uses a Z-pinch plasma, same as Ushio's DPP. They have to use xenon or tin, not hydrogen (deuterium/tritium) as the plasma medium. http://www.aa.washington.edu/research/ZaP/index.html

Another example of a misguided group/startup. They focus so much on solving a big issue, but neglect to follow up on downstream system consequences. A longer pulse per cycle obviously exposes the downstream mirrors to more ionic bombardment, despite best mitigation efforts. They need to make a positive announcement before actual integration with collection optics. Obviously, they won't get anywhere with it.

A few clarifications: * Zplasma's design goal is higher power, not higher energy. * Our core technology is a flow-stabilized Z-pinch. While developed as part of nuclear fusion research, it is not related to nuclear fusion itself. * Our DPP source does use a plasma Z-pinch, but a flow-stabilized pinch, not the unstable pinch used by others in the past. * Our source ends without the explosive instabilities of other DPP sources, so it does not produce high-energy debris. * Optical collection in our design is side-on, not downstream. Thanks, Henry Berg, CEO, Zplasma, Inc.

You can't avoid neutrals going out radially and skipping out the light emitted and charges moving axially.

Thanks for clarifying, but in any case the plasma stable duration is independent of power.
