Core Technologies

General Fusion’s core technologies represent 20 years of intellectual property development.

Calibrating for Commercialization.

Our approach offers a practical path to delivering fusion energy technology. Modern electronics, resilient materials, and advances in plasma physics improve the prospects for fusion energy technology.


We are fine-tuning our designs for the commercial plants of tomorrow. Our Magnetized Target Fusion core technologies are backed by years of research and development. Our engineering work is rooted in representative test beds used to inform our architectures and validate our modeling and simulations.

Plasma Injector

Plasma Injector

Our plasma injector designs have a foundation of numerous prototypes and over 200,000 plasma experiments utilizing some of the most powerful operational fusion plasma injectors.

Compression Systems

Compression System

We have significant experience operating representative compression test beds, necessary to achieve a smooth, rapid, and symmetric compression of our liquid metal cavity.

Fusion Process Stability

Stable Plasma

General Fusion has conducted sub-scale experiments to ensure understanding of plasma stability under compression and in liquid metal systems.

Improving Upon Proven Technologies.

General Fusion maximizes the reapplication of existing industrialized technologies. Magnetized Target Fusion technology offers a more balanced, practical, and cost-effective approach to commercializing fusion energy.

Demonstrating results.

Our fusion demonstration facility is underway now to show our technology at power-plant-relevant scale and to produce fusion conditions.

By proving our Magnetized Target Fusion approach can be practically applied, we will refine our commercial fusion power plant design and improve the economics. We can base our efforts on actual plant performance before we construct our first pilot commercial plant.

Putting Energy into Ecology.

General Fusion has partnered with world-renowned architect AL_A to reimagine industrial power plant design. AL_A founder Amanda Levete is a Royal Institute of British Architects’ Stirling Prize-winning architect. Her team, together with General Fusion and its other development partners, are working together to design a more sustainable relationship between energy and society.
