First measurements of hydrogen-boron fusion in a magnetically confined fusion plasma

First measurements of hydrogen-boron fusion in a magnetically confined fusion plasma

As fusion developers around the world race to commercialize fusion energy, TAE Technologies has pioneered the pursuit of the cleanest and most economical path to providing electricity with hydrogen-boron (also known as p-B11 or p11B), an abundant, environmentally sound fuel. Today the company is announcing, in collaboration with Japan’s National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS), a noteworthy research advancement: the first-ever hydrogen-boron fusion experiments in a magnetically confined fusion plasma.

5 ways fusion energy can change the world for the better

Commercial fusion energy has been making headlines since scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California achieved what many have said was impossible: a fusion experiment that created a net energy gain.

With more than a dozen companies working on different designs to trigger and control fusion reactions, researchers have also come up with innovative systems that can be used in applications from medicine to industrial imaging to electric vehicles. Creating businesses around these products can generate revenue now that will help support the end-goal of a fusion power plant, said Michl Binderbauer, chief executive officer of TAE Technologies Inc.

A look at TAE Chief Science Officer Toshiki Tajima’s life

A look at TAE Chief Science Officer Toshiki Tajima’s life

Long before he became TAE’s Chief Science Officer and an award-winning pioneer in the field of fusion energy, Dr. Toshiki Tajima was a young scientist studying fusion in Tokyo, where his daily walks took him past Shinobazu Pond. 

There, he observed a simple phenomenon: A mother duck paddling through the water and a string of ducklings gliding along behind in her wake. They traveled together at the same speed, despite their difference in size and strength.

TAE Technologies and Japan’s National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS) begin joint experiments with new fusion fuel

As the scientific community—and arguably, the world—experiences renewed interest in the development of fusion energy, it’s worth highlighting the diversity of approaches being pursued. Fusion pioneers are developing a variety of machines that employ a variety of fuels each with their own set of attractive features and technical challenges, but all with the same goal – to develop the technology that enables commercial electricity production from fusion energy. The innovations we’re seeing now, largely in the private sector, represent a wealth of scientific and engineering prowess built on decades of research and experimentation.

The End of Scarcity

The End of Scarcity

Nuclear fusion is the primordial source of the Sun’s energy. For decades, scientists have been trying to recreate it here on Earth. Now, they’re closer than ever to achieving it, and unlocking a future of clean power for all.

In June 2022, amid an oil supply shortage resulting in part from the war in Ukraine, the United States marked a devastating milestone: The average price of a gallon of gasoline topped $5 for the first time in American history.
