The DOE national laboratories possess expertise and capabilities in fusion research spanning over five decades of development.  All seventeen national laboratories participate in the INFUSE program, but only the eleven that appear here have points of contact.  You may find their capabilities and contact information in the links below.  To initiate a dialog with a laboratory, please contact the laboratory POC listed below.  The POC will put you in touch with a principal investigator having the appropriate expertise.  If you are unsure where to start, please discuss your technical challenges with the INFUSE director or deputy director.  You can reach them via e-mail at
