Scientists at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have created new microscopy technique that captures a view of evolving fuel cell catalysts.
In a recent study, RMIT researchers found that stormy space weather causes major electrical disruptions within equatorial regions.
The new technique has one of the fastest heating rates that have ever been performed in a lab - it is also 100 times faster than many current, high power laser systems.
Scientists have discovered a new confinement state for plasma that could lead to the future of fusion energy.
Fusion reactors could actually become an economically viable way to generate electricity within a few decades.
Fusion energy may be the power of the future. Yet the economics of fusion energy haven't exactly worked out. Now, though, scientists may have designed a new concept for a fusion reactor that could solve this issue.
ITER is the next major step in international fusion research. The Fusion for Europe agency F4E is responsible for providing the European contribution to ITER, which is scheduled to go into operation in the early 2020's and demonstrate the feasibility of fusion energy on a power-plant scale for the f...
For the first time in scientific history scientists have harnessed the power of nuclear fusion in a reaction that occurred in under a second. Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California recorded the successful reaction.
Scientists announced on Wednesday an important milestone in the decades-old quest to achieve controlled fusion reactions on earth, which, if harnessed successfully, promises a nearly inexhaustible energy source for future generations.
The superconductivity research group of the University of Twente (UT) has made a technological breakthrough crucial to the success of nuclear fusion reactors, allowing for clean, inexhaustible energy generation based on the workings of the stars in our galaxy.
Results produced at Jülich's large-scale fusion device TEXTOR have considerably advanced international fusion research. Yesterday at 18:00, a plasma discharge provided science with data for the very last time.
Ministers representing many of the world's main economic powers met on 6 September 2013 to show their support for one of the world’s most ambitious scientific experiments – a nuclear fusion reactor that will operate at temperatures ten times hotter than the core of the sun.
