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.

What The Press Is Saying About Us

The [TAE] machine … will transform the world as
completely as any technology in the past century.

The fusion process being pursued by [TAE] is clean, safe and reliable.

Gleaning data from a hot ball of nothing that lasts for much, much less than the blink of an eye requires a lot of clever testing tools.

[TAE] has shown the most progress among the start-ups in maintaining a consistent grip on a plasma.
