Magnetized Target Fusion (MTF) is an alternative approach to fusion which proposes to meet Lawson’s criterion for net gain by the rapid compression of a compact toroid plasma using a conductive metal wall.  This paper provides an overview of the science behind MTF and General Fusion’s systematic development program to design, test, and demonstrate the ability to produce energy using its acoustic MTF technology.
