National Ignition Facility fusion research

Congratulations to the National Ignition Facility on Fusion Achievement

December 21, 2022: The Society for Science at User Research Facilities (SSURF) joins the global scientific community to celebrate the historic fusion ignition achievement at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) announced by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). Through this accomplishment, NIF, a U.S. national scientific user research facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and a member of SSURF, has demonstrated international leadership in fusion energy science and the tremendous value of federally funded research facilities, and the critical role they pay in support of the nation’s national security.
