光産業創成大学院大学（浜松市西区、学長 加藤義章）、トヨタ自動車株式会社（本社 豊田市、代表取締役社長 豊田章男）、浜松ホトニクス株式会社（本社 浜松市中区、代表取締役社長 晝馬明）らは、核融合燃料に対向して設置したレーザーから強度を変えて3段階で対向2ビーム（計6ビーム）照射することで、効率の良い核融合燃料の新たな加熱機構を発見しました。これは、大型のレーザー核融合施設と比較してレーザー本数が少なくコンパクトな装置でも核融合燃料を圧縮でき、十分に加熱、発光可能なことを示したものであり、将来のレーザー核融合実用化に向けて前進しました。
本研究成果は、7月28日（木）付け米国物理学会誌「Physical Review Letters（フィジカル・レビュー・レターズ）」の電子版に掲載される予定です。また、10月17日（月）から6日間、国際原子力機関（IAEA）が京都で主催する「第26回 IAEA核融合エネルギー会議」で本研究成果を発表する予定です。
なお、本研究チームは、光産業創成大学院大学、トヨタ自動車株式会社 先端材料技術部、浜松ホトニクス株式会社 中央研究所、株式会社豊田中央研究所、名古屋大学未来社会創造機構、公益財団法人 レーザー技術総合研究所、米国ネバダ大学リノ校、国立研究開発法人 産業技術総合研究所の8研究機関19名の研究者で構成されています。

For modern websites to work according to visitor’s expectations, they need to collect certain basic information about visitors.
