HB11 Energy conducts experiment at CLPU, University of Salamanca

In November, HB11 Energy conducted an experimental campaign at the Centro de Laseres Pulsados (CLPU) Universidad de Salamanca, Spain. This was performed by a large academic collaboration including our Lead Scientist, Dimitri Batani and by HB11 Energy’s local collaborators Luca Volpe, Marine Huault and Howel Larreur.

HB11 Energy collaborators at CLPU: Howel Larreur – PhD student at University of Salamanca, Marien Huault – Post Doc at University of Salamnca, Luca Volpe – Professor, CLPU and University of Salamanca, Fabrizio Consoli – ENEA Frascati, Principal Investigator of the experiment, Katarzyna Batani – IPPLM Warsaw and chair of COST Action PROBONO, Daniel Molloy – PhD student at Queens University of Belfast

Taking advantage of the high-repetition rate of their VEGA 3 facility, this experiment scanned a broad range of laser parameters to understand the optimum laser pulse required to create the ideal conditions for fusion.  While the analysis of these results is ongoing, we can confirm that all experiments were successful with achieving fusion.
