Magneto-Inertial Fusion Technologies, Inc. (MIFTI)

Applying fusion technology to the medical and energy fields MIFTI was founded in 2008 by scientists from the University of California Irvine. For over 25 years, these scientist have researched and refined a method of controlled thermonuclear fusion, based on Staged Z-Pinch. This concept has predicted a net gain of controlled thermonuclear fusion energy that … Read moreMagneto-Inertial Fusion Technologies, Inc. (MIFTI)

Kip Siegel

Inspired by Dr. Teller’s work, and his prophetic warning to keep people informed, a Michigan physics professor named Dr. Keeve (Kip) Siegel formed the first and only private-sector company to pursue controlled fusion research using lasers. In the early 1970s, he formed KMS Industries, with the goal of successfully achieving laser inertial fusion energy. With … Read moreKip Siegel

Robert Bussard

Robert W. Bussard (August 11, 1928 – October 6, 2007) was an American physicist who worked primarily in nuclear fusion energy research. He was the recipient of the Schreiber-Spence Achievement Award for STAIF-2004.  He was also a fellow of the International Academy of Astronautics and held a Ph.D. from Princeton University. In June, 1955 Bussard moved to Los Alamos and joined … Read moreRobert Bussard
