The Australian Plasma Fusion Research Facility (H-1NF) is a uniquely versatile plasma research facility, located at ANU.

The heart of the facility is the H-1 Heliac, a large stellarator device which is the Australian focus of basic experimental research on magnetically confined plasma, important in developing fusion energy, a clean, virtually inexhaustible energy source.

Research at H-1NF ensures Australia is well-equipped to benefit from a future fusion power industry.
