Magnetized Target Fusion (MTF) is a hybrid approach to fusion in which a self-organized plasma is compressed with the inertia of a conductive liner to conditions that fulfill the Lawson criterion [1]. This paper provides an overview of MTF and the ongoing research at General Fusion (GF) to design, test, and demonstrate the ability to produce energy using its acoustic MTF technology.
