Recent Advances in Power Cycles Using Rotating Detonation Engines with Subcritical and Supercritical CO2
So rocketdyne has been doing interesting RDWE plasma assisted combustors, in this case intended for oxyfuel powerplants with CO2 capture

Interesting continuous wave detonation engine design. Basically you have a shockwave running around in circles (well, a spiral of sorts) in an open ended annular space, with careful injection of propellant just before the wave arrives at a particular point in the injector ring on one end. Similar to a PDE engine, in that you need high speed pulsed injection just before the detonation wave arrives on the ring, and you have this spiral output that resembles a PDE pulse output.
