Oxford Sigma Technologies
The fusion industry has been gaining momentum and this decade should yield milestone results to demonstrate fusion energy as a real source of energy. However, fusion energy environmental conditions that will be experienced by the structural and functional materials are extreme and the ability to withstand these conditions are still unsolved.
Oxford Sigma develops enabling materials technologies for fusion energy in order to accelerate the deployment of this carbon-free energy source.
The company is focused on key materials and their applications in the following topics:
Plasma Facing Materials
Liquid Metal Technologies
Materials Testing Facilities
Fusion Materials Processing
Automated Design Tools
Oxford Sigma is actively engaged in research collaborations with universities and national laboratories on developing new materials solutions for fusion energy. Some of the collaborators are found below.
