HB11 Energy conducts experiment at Prague Asterix Laser System (PALS)
It’s been a busy month for HB11 Energy with many of our Science Team at the Prague Asterix Laser System (PALS), Institute of Plasma Physics (IPP) of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
The experiment will gain an understanding of the material properties of boron nitride under extreme conditions created by the world’s highest power lasers. This is a key piece of the scientific puzzle required to understand hydrogen-boron fusion, and also provides input for codes to accurately simulate the quantum physics that happens in less than one trillionth of a second after a laser fires.
HB11 Energy is one of several collaborators on this project: PALS Prague, IPPLM Warsaw, University of Bordeaux, University of Salamanca, with samples made by our partners at Deakin University, the site of HB11 Energy’s future fuel manufacturing facility.
