The focus of the Fusion Technology Group is R&D necessary to transform fusion from a science program to a viable energy source for MFE, IFE and Laser Inertial Fusion-Fission Energy (LIFE). Activities includes R&D for both near-term (NIF, ITER) and longer-term (proof of principle, demo, power plant) steps to fusion. Traditional areas of expertise include:
