HomeJoint Research with TAE Technologies

Joint Research with TAE Technologies The National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS) and TAE Technologies, Inc., a U.S. private fusion company, have agreed to jointly promote fusion research using advanced fusion fuels, and signed a joint research agreement to start our collaboration from September 1, 2021. TAE Technology is the oldest private fusion company and is working on commercial fusion reactors using advanced fusion fuels, i.e., proton and boron. We are planning to conduct a joint research project for the detection of helium nuclei or alpha particles, which are produced by proton-boron fusion reactions, at the Large Helical Device of the National Institute for Fusion Science.
