Australia’s first laser fusion energy company HB11 Energy will launch a $22 million project to develop the next-generation high-power lasers needed to create a multi-billion dollar nuclear fusion energy industry from Australia, and export this capability to the world. The HB11 Energy project forms part of a $50 million Trailblazer grant awarded to the University… Read More
Australia’s first fusion energy company HB11 Energy has demonstrated a world-first ‘material’ number of fusion reactions by a private company, producing ten times more fusion reactions than expected based on earlier experiments at the same facility. HB11 Energy’s world-first results were published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal, Applied Sciences, and demonstrate non-thermal fusion of hydrogen… Read More
Thanks to those of you who have expressed an interest in investing in HB11 Energy. We are pleased to announce that HB11 Energy is now raising capital! We are seeking to raise USD$20m to fund the next stage of research as our global scientific team moves to meet a series of science and engineering milestones… Read More
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… Read More
High peak-power “Petawatt” lasers drive extreme light-matter interactions to generate plasmas and particle/photon jets with conditions of temperature, electric and magnetic fields strengths only otherwise found in extreme astrophysical events (centre of stars, supernova explosions, binary star accretion, edge of black holes). They have opened the field of high-energy-density physics, including many new opportunities for… Read More
