advances in fusion reactor design?
Here's a link to an article about a mysterious company and its apparently new (?) fusion reactor design:

Quote:To achieve fusion gain—more energy out than heating pumped in—researchers will have to make FRCs last for at least a second. Although that feat seems a long way off, Santarius says Tri Alpha has shown a way forward. “If they scale up size, energy confinement should go up,” he says. Tri Alpha researchers are already working with an upgraded device, which has differently oriented ion beams and more beam power.

That article also contains a link to the scientific paper, published by the company:

I guess, it's a step forward.
