Indeed there is an article in the current issue of "Infinite Energy" about R.W. Bussard's patented efforts using EXL geometry (electrons moving to an anodic central grid) to do just this. However I am just now searching for details on the existing work/theory. Looks promising but need to see quantitative estimates to see if it's feasable.
