Substantial physics, engineering, and technological efforts are required to build and operate magnetic fusion devices. This work has led to advances in the state-of-the-art in a host of disciplines, including vacuum technology, materials science, electronics, computer technology, and high-voltage power systems. The technological advancements arising out of PPPL’s research are applicable to many other fields, including aerospace, defense, manufacturing, data processing, communications, and the power industry.
The transfer of technology to private industry, academic institutions, and other federal laboratories is an important mission of PPPL. As a technology resource, PPPL seeks to provide its unique expertise to solutions of industrial problems. PPPL expertise is also available to assist small businesses and to provide technological help and guidance where possible. In addition, PPPL participates in the U.S. Department of Energy Technology Partnership Ombuds Initiative.
The PPPL Office of Technology Transfer is the initial point of contact for public and private organizations wishing access to PPPL's scientific and technological resources. The Office of Technology Transfer is prepared to assist industry, universities, state and local government, and others in the transfer process.
