TAE Technologies is committed to creating a sustainable future for us all. We began our research into fusion energy nearly 20 years ago, and built our company with commercialization in mind. Our solution is clean, compact, affordable – and safe in every way. In short: Friendly Fusion.
We Call It Norman Because He Deserves it
- TAE Technologies latest generator is named after our late intellectual co-founder, Dr. Norman Rostoker.
- He envisioned the path to clean, commercial fusion energy nearly two decades ago. Today’s working machine is nearly identical to his original model.
- Since unveiling Norman in July 2017, we have performed over 3,000 experiments with the machine.
- Our current work with Norman is focused on plasma merging and field-reverse configurations (FRCs) to achieve optimal, scalable conditions for fusion.

TAE Technologies is proud to announce our proprietary beam-driven field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma generator, Norman, achieved a new technical milestone, bringing us closer to the reality of commercial fusion power. After over 4,000 experiments to date, Norman has now exceeded the capabilities and performance of the company’s previous FRC plasma generator, C-2U, and sets a new company record for plasma temperature.

TAE Technologies recently announced its ongoing collaboration with Google to apply machine learning to advance plasma research. Together, the team developed the Optometrist Algorithm, which demonstrates that optimal conditions for generating fusion technology are better identified when an element of human choice is added to the experiment.
