Latest Fusion reactors Stories
The US construction of the National Ignition Facility (NIF) is complete and researchers are preparing to start the first experiments aimed at recreating conditions at the heart of our Sun.
Research carried out at MIT's Alcator C-Mod fusion reactor may have brought the promise of fusion as a future power source a bit closer to reality, though scientists caution that a practical fusion powerplant is still decades away.
U.S. scientists say they've created a new cast stainless steel that is 70 percent stronger than comparable steels. Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the U.S.
Europe is looking into an alternative fusion project that would seek abundant clean energy using a colossal laser the size of a football stadium.
Scientists are currently seeking to develop new stronger steel in light of recent findings that show weakness in steel due to its magnetic properties.
The U.S. Department of Energy says it is seeking a contractor to manage and operate its Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory in Princeton, N.J. Department officials say their Request for Proposals says the laboratory receives approximately $78 million annually from the Energy Department.
For about six months of the year, bursts of plasma swirl around a donut-shaped tube in a special reactor, helping scientists learn more about a potential future energy source: nuclear fusion.
A particle accelerator at Sandia National Laboratories has heated a swarm of charged particles to a record 2 billion degrees Kelvin, a temperature beyond that of a star's interior.
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union agreed on Friday to include India in a 10-billion-euro project to build an experimental nuclear fusion reactor that in the long-run could provide virtually unlimited, cheap and clean energy.
By Guy Faulconbridge MOSCOW (Reuters) - France is to host the world's firstnuclear fusion reactor, the project's multinational partnersagreed on Tuesday, bringing closer a technology backers saycould one day provide the world with endless cheap energy.
