Professor Dimitri Batani (University of Bordeaux and CELIA, France; Plasma Physics Group, University of Milano; Ph.D. in Physics University of Pisa, 1990) has been appointed as Lead Scientist for HB11 Energy.

Prof. Batani has always been focused on the physics of laser-produced plasmas and has been involved in many of the early demonstrations of non-thermal fusion with lasers. As Lead Scientist for HB11 Energy, he is now responsible for the scientific strategy intended to get HB11 to Net Energy Gain. This involves submitting experimental proposals to laser facilities to receive allocated ‘laser time’, as well as assembling a scientific community around the topic of proton Born fusion. To this end, Prof. Batani is running a seminar series for HB11, which brings together internationally renowned scientists to provide thought leadership that we hope will rapidly advance the field of Fusion Energy.
