    Information on the fusor concept can be found at - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farnsworth-Hirsch_Fusor

    Major Problem with Fusor Electrodes
    As for Plasma Focus - this is essentially a magneto-plasmadynamic (MPD) device, and it operates in a pulsed mode. I have reviewed information provided by http://focusfusion.org and found claims to be highly questionable. MPD's also suffer from elctrode erosion and contamination of the plasma.
